Keeper Hill, also known as Slievekimalta, gets its name from a little-known story about Sadb, daughter of Conn Cétcathach, raising her children Eogan and Indderb on this mountain after they had been rejected by their father Ailill Ólom, king of Munster. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 215-16) for details of the festive assembly which took place on Keeper Hill in mid-August. A stone circle in Bauraglanna townland on the NE slopes is known as Firbrega ('false men'). It consists of eleven orthostats of varying heights, with several prostrate stones around the perimeter. There is a large, flat recumbent stone in the centre [Archaeological Inventory of North Tipperary].   Keeper Hill is the highest mountain in the Shannon area and the 120th highest in Ireland.

When I got to the top of Keeper I'd wished I'd taken it from the side below this mast. Anyway would have done to get away from the geezers zooming up and down on their quads, but at the same time it looks like a climb. Having said that when we got back to the southern side where we left the car we nearly stayed. The pints of black made up for it all. I wish I could remember the name of the place......
