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.

WOODY on Slieve Carr, 2006
by WOODY  6 Oct 2006
climbed this in spring -summer 06, followed the bangor trail from the lodge at shramore towards bangor until just past meeting point with western way, turned north - north east to climb minor hill ( 410 M ) and then down into dip and up onto nephin beg, continued heading almost straight for the summit of slieve carr, over corslieve and on up to cairn at summit. not in any way technical but strenuous and heavy on time, turned round and reversed the whole thing back to shramore, pic attached Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/94/comment/2522/
