Has been called Aghalard.   Slieve Bawn is the highest hill in the North West Midlands area and the 1255th highest in Ireland. Slieve Bawn is the most easterly in the North West Midlands area.

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/
