Also known as Slieve Cor or Corslieve. The Discovery map links the name Corslieve with a neighbouring peak (541m) situated about 3 miles to the south, but the Ordnance Survey Name Book and William Bald's map of Mayo (1830) show quite clearly that it is simply an alternative for Slieve Carr, with the same elements inverted. A cairn on the summit is named Laghtdauhybaun on the old ½ inch map, but is unnamed on the Discovery map. This is probably derived from Ir. Leacht Dáithí Bháin, 'burial monument of white Dáithí'. There may be a connection with Dáithí, a king of Connacht and reputed last pagan high-king of Ireland (see Slieve Alp).   Slieve Carr is the second highest mountain in the North Mayo area and the 97th highest in Ireland.

Great hike in ideal conditions

I also did the two trail route from Letterkeen (Bangor Trail in: Western Way back) and had excellent weather and fairly dry conditions. One slight variant was to leave the Bangor Trail at T920097 D when it started downhill, and to contour round the hillside (aiming for a gleaming chunk of quartz), which brought me out just below the outfall from Scardaun Lakes at T921111 E. The southeast spur from the summit ridge offers a good way down, and from the knoll at T932125 F you can head straight down to a small clearing in the forestry that drops you at a set of steps down onto the forestry track. There has been a lot of clear cutting (May 2019) so the views on the way back are better. 27.4 km, 1074 m elevation gain, 5:54 walking time, 7:03 elapsed.
