This mountain is steeped in mythology. The name is derived from the following legend: Fionn Mac Cumhaill sat waiting at the top while women raced up it to win his hand. Since Fionn and Gráinne were in love, he had shown her a short-cut and she duly won the race. Yeats preferred the name Knockfefin. The mountain rises from the plain of Femen, which represents ‘woman’ or ‘femininity’. The song Slievenamon is the Tipperary anthem.
Slievenamon is the highest mountain in the South East Midlands area and the 99th highest in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/95/
