Keeper Hill, also known as Slievekimalta, gets its name from a little-known story about Sadb, daughter of Conn Cétcathach, raising her children Eogan and Indderb on this mountain after they had been rejected by their father Ailill Ólom, king of Munster. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 215-16) for details of the festive assembly which took place on Keeper Hill in mid-August. A stone circle in Bauraglanna townland on the NE slopes is known as Firbrega ('false men'). It consists of eleven orthostats of varying heights, with several prostrate stones around the perimeter. There is a large, flat recumbent stone in the centre [Archaeological Inventory of North Tipperary].   Keeper Hill is the highest mountain in the Shannon area and the 120th highest in Ireland.

Winter Wonderland
by hendycoco  6 May 2016
Keeper Hill is a great option for anyone interested in starting hillwalking. It consists of a looped walk with an option of branching off and walking to the summit of the hill. The 14km hike took me 3.5hrs to complete but could be done faster or slower depending on fitness. The views from the top are fantastic on a clear day. The last day I climbed it I was lucky to encounter snow at the summit..it was a real winter wonderland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/117/comment/18518/
