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 Midlands area and the 98th highest in Ireland.

I climbed Slievenamon from the same starting point as Simon at S317288 A just north of Kilcash. The start point is at the 240 metre contour so to the summit at 721 it is a 480 metre climb. The route up is easy to follow along a path all of the way and there are two crests on the route where the subsequent journey is revealed. As others have described there is a cairn, standing stone and trig point at the summit. Great views extend south and to the Comeraghs. This photo shows the route back down.
