Not named on the OS Discovery Series. Known locally as Slieve Carn or sometimes Slieve Horn. The Metrical Dindsenchas (11th century) refers to Sliabh Cairthinn i nGaileangaibh (barony of Gallen). If this is the same hill, as seems likely, Sliabh Cairthinn (perhaps connected with Ir. cairthe, 'standing stone') would be an early alternative name to Sliabh Chairn, 'mountain of the cairn'. Has been called Cuillalea.   Slieve Carn is the 1247th highest place in Ireland. Slieve Carn is the second most westerly summit in the North Midlands area.
