Carrickbyrne Hill, 7 miles east of New Ross, may be the modern name of Aird Leamhnachta, a height which is the subject of a Dindshenchas poem, in which it is said to be in Uí Cheinnselaig (HDGP). See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 227-28) for details of the festive assembly which took place on the Carrickbyrne Hill on 'Rock Sunday' or 'Fraughan Sunday' in mid-July. A grassy sward on its summit is called the Green Loft.   Carrickbyrne Hill is the 1330th highest place in Ireland.

Leave the Machete at Home
by Pepe  26 Mar 2016
Met a local lady out walking her dog. She showed me an easy way up uncluttered by foliage. Park in the upper carpark and follow the forest trail off to the right. Ignore all small trails leading up left off this until you see the signpost for '98 Rebel Camp'. Turn left here. You will soon come to a fork in this path as it wends its way up and west off the main forestry trail. Veer right and arrive at the rebel camp from which I could find no way up to the top through the foliage. No worries though, the camp site is worth a goo. All you have to do then is return to that fork and take the left trail. This takes you to the summit without any need of a machete at all.
