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 217th highest summit in Ireland.

......the scenic route
by didymus  8 Jan 2012
My wife and I enjoyed a delighful walk begining on the kerry Way as it left the truck road past Mountain Stage. We stayed on that path for around an hour and at approx 595878 A we headed up via Leacht Fhionan to the top of Drung hill. The effort was well rewarded with a wonderful panorama of mountain water, and sky. The undulating ridge southwards to Mullaghnarill is as good as it gets for isolation, and for a close encounter with nature. The arete from point 702m northeastwards to Coomreagh adds extra drama if not danger to this circuit.To avoid a low level return walk we had a second car parked at approximately 636852 B.
