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.

We couldn't find the first access point mentioned by wicklore as the place to enter the forest. A local man suggested that we turn NW at M96927279 D near a pub - this is on the road from Curraghcroe to Ballagh. Follow the forest roads and when there is a choice, take the turn that leads you nearest in bearing to the summit. You will come upon the sign mentioned by wicklore and then it's 250m to the top.
Views are as mentioned before "sporadic". Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/991/comment/4675/
