The flower in the below picture is the wood anemone (Anemone nemorosa). Its mainly a plant of limestone woodland, but also grows on open limestone grassland, as I assume must be the case at the summit of Clomantagh Hill. Its always one of the first flowers out in the spring, and can form dense carpets of white flowers in woods before the leaves of the trees shut out the light. The flower is superficially similar to the Mountain Avens (Dryas octopetala), but has six petals rather than eight. The leaves and growth habit are also different, the wood anemone has deeply dissected leaves on weak, individual stems, while the mountain avens has shallowly lobed, oak-like leaves and forms dense, woody clumps. Mountain avens is very restricted in distribution, being frequent on the limestone pavement of the Burren and found rarely in one or two other places in the country, but isn't found anywhere near Kilkenny, while the Wood Anemone is frequent across the country.
