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.

If you like bogs...You'll love this

From Nephin Beg (see entry) the toughest of this walk came as we had a brief glimpse of scenery going North on the ridge towards Corslieve from Nephin Beg, this showed us a huge expanse of bog to the west towards the Atlantic and a lake to our right and East. The Northern view however actually startled me as the vast wall of Corslieve appeared fleetingly from the mist. The climb up Corslieve was a savage, full-on, thigh crunching screamer. All I could do was do it one foot at a time and hope for no cramps or blisters! Also the fact that I was following a dream and would be soon on Ireland most isolated summit. All in all 13 km from Letterkeen Wood and our cars and 6 hours! We returned via the Bangor Trail which took 4.5 hours and it was 14km. This is not a walk for the faint hearted, but if not for the poor weather would have been really enjoyable. North Mayo... I shall return! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/94/comment/5971/
