Also referred to as Mother Mountain in some sources, though this seems to have no basis. Locally also called Moherclea or simply Moher. A pile of stones at the summit is called the Terrot. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 214-15) for details of the festive assembly which took place on Mauherslieve at the end of June.   Mauherslieve is the second highest mountain in the Shannon area and the 436th highest in Ireland.

Nice views, solitude and spirituality
by BarnaneGoat  8 Jul 2017
Climbed this mountain during the week by taking a spur from the Kilcommon Pilgrim Loop, a way marked walking route that starts in Kilcommon village. I was surprised that the route to the summit was way marked for most of the way up. It ascends through forestry along a narrow trail before emerging onto boggy ground with a thin covering of small trees. Underfoot conditions are poor and the path is not distinct. The last few hundred metres is up through blanket bog. The summit itself is a low and pretty featureless dome shape but there is an interesting prehistoric cairn. At 530 metres, Mauherslieve has fine views in all directions. The mountain has mythical associations with ancient Celtic deities and thefestival of Lughnasa. Overall, not a huge challenge but rewarding views make it worthwhile. It is also very much off the beaten track so there is every chance you will have the place to yourself Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/368/comment/19588/
