Sheecor is a cairn-topped limestone hill at the heart of the Bricklieve Mountans. The monument is a low, flat cairn or platform passage-grave similar to those at Carrowmore. The monument sits at the highest point of the small hill at 216 meters above sea level. There is a fine view to the north and south, while the view to the west is blocked by the great hill of Kesh Corran. The Carrowkeel complex lies to the east.
The beautiful spring-fed mountain lake called Lough na Leibe lies nestled in the valley immediately east the foot of Sheecor. Lough Gowra, a smaller lake or turlough is to the south is fed by a stream flowing south from Lough ma Leibe.
The smaller hills which lie between Carrowkeel and Kesh Corran are known as the Piglets: Treanmor, Treanmacmurtgh and Treanscabbagh. A dindsenchas story which describes how the Hill of Kesh was formed tells of a great sow named Cael Ceis who was butchered on the site; the smaller hills are considered to be the piglets of the great sow.
Sheecor must be an important Sidhe or Brú; it has a very similar shape and appearance to the iconic Glastonbury Tor in Somerset. Its shape and location between the lake and the mountain lends the site an incredibly Otherworldly presence. Sheecor means the 'Round Fairy Hill', but may also mean Shee Corran, the fairy musician associated with the Hill of Kesh Corran.
On the summit of Sheecor, with commanding views and overlooking Lough Labe to east. A sod-covered oval flat-topped cairn (13 meters by 11.2 meters; maximum height 1.2 meters) of small to medium sized limestone stones; the sides slope gently. There is a trigonometrical station on top of the cairn. This has been listed as a possible passage tomb (Ó Nualláin 1989, 84).
