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.

John Keats wrote an ode to autumn which started "seasons of mist and mellow fruitfulness" and these lines continued to invade my thoughts as I walked onto the summit of Mauherslieve last Fri 2nd of October 2009. On my trip out from Thurles through the country of my ancestors, the roads and lanes were weighted down by fruits of all kinds. the haw, crab apples, nuts, sloes and chestnuts. my way was shrouded in mist as I followed the paths up from the sheep pen as described by csd in an earlier article. I followed his directions and broke out onto the mountain from the forests at R87460 62394 E, there is a small indent in the forest on the map. From here there is a fence all the way to the summit. There is a small hole in the summit cairn that provides protection from the wind. A lovely three hour walk on a windy and wet morning. excellent Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/368/comment/4186/
