Carrickbyrne Hill, 7 miles east of New Ross, may be the modern name of Aird Leamhnachta, a height which is the subject of a Dindshenchas poem, in which it is said to be in Uí Cheinnselaig (HDGP). See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 227-28) for details of the festive assembly which took place on the Carrickbyrne Hill on 'Rock Sunday' or 'Fraughan Sunday' in mid-July. A grassy sward on its summit is called the Green Loft.   Carrickbyrne Hill is the third highest hill in the South Wexford area and the 1315th highest in Ireland.

Handy walk
by Kennyj  2 Jan 2016
Taking advantage of the brief respite in all the recent rain and flooding I took a quick run up and down Carrickbyrne hill,parked at the recreational area just off the N25 and followed the forest track uphill to a second car park or clearing,picked up a track heading uphill to a viewing point before following a narrow path NE all the way to the trig point at the summit,a bit overgrown in places and fairly wet following all the bad weather.Nothing to see up here today as low cloud and mist covered everything.Handy little walk up and down in 40 mins Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1018/comment/18414/
