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 434th highest in Ireland.

Sunny side up
by Colin Murphy  28 Nov 2010
Took the accompanying snap of a milky sun having just risen behind the Mauherslieve and got the peculiar effect of a giant sun appearing to be in front of the hill. Followed csd's suggested route and was up and down in 1.5 hours, although the climb after the forestry track is sheer torture - very uneven terrain covered with heather!
