6km NW of Lanesborough. The name has nothing to do with bán, 'white'. Bána is the modern form of Badbgna, name of a Fir Bolg chieftain of this area. In clear conditions it is possible to see as far as Crough Patrick. There is also a fine view of the many islands on Lough Ree. Has been called Aghalard.   Slieve Bawn is the 1249th highest place in Ireland. Slieve Bawn is the second highest point in county Roscommon.

No longer a drive-up
by TommyMc  23 Apr 2019
A series of new road barriers means that it's no longer possible to drive further than the car park on the Strokestown side. A very pleasant walk uphill from the car park to the summit and back took me about an hour. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/991/comment/20498/
