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.

February 14, 2010, my first time to climb Slievenamon. Started from above Kilcash having driven over from Limerick. High, thin cloud and some blue sky made for a day spent eye-balling the surrounding peaks, massifs and lowlands. The views extended from Mount Leinster, still with a cape of snow, around to the sea at Waterford; the Comeraghs, Knockmealdowns and Galtees; possibly the Ballyhouras just to the right, Keeper Hill and the Silvermines, Devils Bit and the Slieve Blooms; and further towards the west, the Slieve Bernagh group above Killaloe and Lough Derg. Stunning! Completing a circuit that entailed dropping down from the summit in a westerly direction, taking in two smaller tops and returning to the car along the track on the south side of the mountain...all in 3 1/2 hours with warm spring sunshine once down out of the cold north wind. I will be back and this time I will have numbers with me! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/95/comment/4401/
