A fair was held regularly on Drung Hill (Barrington, 'Discovering Kerry', p. 267), which would account for the throng. There is another hill of the same name near Lauragh on the Beara Peninsula. Barrington connects Drung Hill in Iveragh with the 'kingdom of Drung', which apparently paid a tribute of thirty oxen to Cashel. Leacht Fhionáin on Drung Hill is the reputed grave of St. Fionán. It is not at the summit, as marked on the Discovery map, but on a knoll halfway down the N. slope. The penitential station and well were visited on the last Sunday of July (MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa', pp. 134-37).   Drung Hill is the 218th highest summit in Ireland.

A slight variation from the usual routes up and down Drung Hill. After climbing Beenmore, we retraced our track to Drung Hill and descended directly to the Kerry Way, or the Butter Road, which we followed back to our car. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/211/comment/18117/
