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 1251th highest place in Ireland. Slieve Carn is the second most westerly summit in the North Midlands area.

PuterMan is correct in describing the fabulous views to be had from the top of Slieve Carn. Unlike PuterMan I drove up the very rough and steep (1 in 4) access road from the Kiltimagh side ending up only 5 minutes walk from the cairn. I would not advise driving up this route, I bottomed out a couple of times (my car is a large MPV high off the ground) and opted to drive down the West side which is far more gentle. The access road is no doubt both for the turf as well as the wind farm on the summit plateau. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/990/comment/4180/
