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.

We parked at the old ball alleys just outside Toor Village. We followed the Slieve Felim Way in the direction of Keeper Hill to the forest and then followed a track left up towards Keeper Hill. We followed the tracks up Keeper Hill to the summit. Lovely views from the top. The route was pretty straight forward but found the hard ground though going on the feet. A local farm dog followed us up and down. She was harmless and appeared to enjoy the company!! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/117/comment/951/
