Sliabh Liag

The mountain of Sliabh Liag covers 5000 acres and stretches from Teileann all the way to
Malin Beag. The rocks that formed Sliabh Liag are 300 million years old and are part of the Dalradian supergroup.
Sliabh Liag rises to a height of 603m (1972ft), the highest point being the arete called the
One Man’s Pass. The mountain has many man-made additions that range from St Aodh Mac Bhricne’s church at the top of the Pilgrim’s Path, to a Martello Tower built by the British during the Napoleonic Wars and an EIRE sign which was constructed by the Irish
Government during the Second World War.



Teileann is a village situated at the foot of Sliabh Liag.
Up until the early 20th century it was the largest port in south west Donegal and indeed it
appears on some of the earliest maps of Ireland because of it’s importance. Teileann is also a hotbed of Irish Culture and Music, noted Folklorist Sean O’hEoicheadh and Master Fiddler Con Cassidy both hail from the area.
