Church Mountain, sometimes called Slievegad (Irish: Sliabh an Chodaigh, meaning "mountain of the covenant"),[1] is the westernmost of the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland.[1] At the summit are the remains of a large cairn and an old triangulation pillar. Just east of the N81 national route, it lies roughly halfway between Hollywood to the north and Donard to the south.
