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.

Slievenamon

I climbed Slievenamon for the first time on 16th April 2010 from the starting point S317288 A (Point A). I found the climb tough but this was probably due to my lack of fitness! It took me just under an hour to reach the summit. I met another hillwalker near the summit and he informed me that it normally takes 45 mins to reach the top. The views are just magnificent . Hopefully the next time I climb this mountain, i will find it a much easier climb. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/95/comment/4637/
