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 third highest hill in the South Wexford area and the 1319th highest in Ireland.

An easy ramble
Short Summary created by jackill, wicklore  12 Feb 2012
Park at the Carrickbyrne recreational area entrance at S 828 240 A or drive up further up the entrance track to another car park a few hundred metres on.
Carrickbyrne has two 'summits', and there is a narrow track from the col at S825 246 B to the main summit. This track is overgrown in places and there are some tree trunks and rocks to scramble over.
The forest tracks on the map for this hill are accurate on the ground. Good views of the Blackstairs to the north.
A track from near the col leads to a clearing in the forest on the smaller summit. This clearing was the site of 1798 Rebel activity and there is an inscription on a rock about this.
A busy area with a lot of local walkers at weekends. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1018/comment/5777/
