I have been searching for information on the mountians nearest the town of Killaloe. Across the Shannon river from the Arra's. On the west of the Shannon is a Mt. range named Slieve Aught. Slightly seperate from it, at it's south end is a Mt. Is it part of the Slieve Aught range? Dose it have a name of its own? And what if any is it's history? Can anyone please helpe me?

A Bhean Uasal,

Is é ainm an tsléibhe, Sliabh Bearnach, go díreach mar sin, gan an t-alt. (Is féidir gur tuiseal consonta é an '-ch' seachas foirceann aidiachta. Bhíodh -dh' aige mar fhoirceann tuisil chomh maith leis an -n'. -adh > -ach?)
Luaigh Gearóid Mac Spealáin é i gceann éigin dá chuid leabhar. Is cosúil go mbeirtí 'Gleann na gCailleach' nó a mhacasamhail air, scathamh.

In name, 'Sliabh Bearnach' without the definite article. Mentioned by Gearóid Mac Spealáin in (?) 'Aos Trí Muighe' or another local history book, not to hand. (not 'Cathair Luimnighe')
May have been called 'Gleann na gCailleach Mountain' for a time. You will notice the 'gleann' so named on any map of the area.

Beir bua.
