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 98th highest in Ireland.

Climbed Slievenamon this morning,parking at S317288 A outside of Kilcash and following an easy track to this most interesting mountain,the summit has a most impressive cairn as well as trig pillar,standing stone,concrete bunker and a memorial to a deceased walker who actually died close to the summit.Seeing this made me stop and reflect on the dangers of this sport I enjoy so much.
Perhaps most interesting on this mountain is the standing stone about half way up marked with what I think are Ogham runes and symbols with an inscription in Irish I gconai i no chroi on the base.On doing some research on this I came upon a blog by photographer Nigel Borrington who asks for information on this stone with perhaps the most interesting post being from Anthony M Sheedy Keeper of Slievenamon who says. It gives me great pleasure to assure you all that this is but a minor mystery in the great realm of the wildness of the Slievenamon mountain range.In this ancient corner of an ancient land our cares are shed.....retired within the great boulders are many a gentle ghost......but beware we are creating the calling stones of our distant heritage......from a far off Galaxy.DO NOT BE ON THE MOUNTAIN AT THE CHANGING OF THE MOON. Just sums up what a magical place this is ! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/95/comment/18609/
