"Pinkman: Cor-na-sliabh = Hill of the heath lands. This townland lies about two miles east of Carrick-on-Shannon, where there is no such thing as a mountain. The word, sliabh, is often applied to heath land, whether mountain or plain. In districts of flat surface a very inconsiderable elevation is called a sliah. O’Brien’s Dictionary says it rather means heathy ground, whether low or flat, or in the form of a hill. (Compare Hogan, Onomasticon, Sliabh). "
