Seltannasaggart (from Irish: Sailtean na Sagart, meaning "willow plantation of the priests"),[2] also called Corry Mountain, is a low mountain near Lough Allen on the border of County Roscommon and County Leitrim in Ireland. It is the highest point of County Roscommon. It is part of the Arigna Mountains and rises to a height of 428 metres (1,404 ft).[1]

There is a wind farm and a quarry on the summit, which is easily accesible. The Miners Way trail passes over it. On the southern slopes are the remains of a promontory fort and sweat houses.
