Corrie Mountain otherwise known as Seltannasaggart is a hill amongst the Arigna Mountains which stands on the border of the counties of Leitrim and Roscommon.

The summit plateau bears the scars of industrial activity and a substantial quarry is in operation. Seltannasaggart is the second highest hill in the Arigna Mountains (and the 701st highest in all Ireland).


The hill has two names: Seltannasaggart Hill and Corrie Mountain (or Corry Mountain), which may be used interchangeably. The name Seltannasaggart is from the Irish language Sailtean na Sagart, menaing "willow-plantation of the priests".
