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 1197th highest in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1018/
