It featured very largely in the Irish psyche and culture back in the nineties on account of the controversy surrounding a proposed interpretive centre. During & after this long debate, Mullaghmore became central in our attitude to the environment, specifically the preservation of wilderness, access   Mullagh More is the 1420th highest place in Ireland. Mullagh More is the second most easterly summit in the West Clare area.

Acting the goat...
by Colin Murphy  7 Aug 2019
Besides the fascinating landscape, one of the most interesting sights were the wild goats wandering around relatively close to the walkers. I saw as many as 20, and they've obviously gotten used to humans as they didn't particularly shy away from us. I took the trouble to look them up later, and apparently they are Feral Goats, descended from domestic populations brought to Ireland around 4,000 years ago.They have specially adapted hooves which have spongy pads and a thick layer of skin on their front knees, which greatly assists their climbing. I also discovered that goats have rectangular pupils, that more people in the world eat goat meat, drink goat milk and eat goat's cheese than any other animal including cows and chickens. And my last goat factoid - in 9th Ethiopia, a century goat herder called Kaldi saw goats behaving more energetically after eating from a particular bush. He tried it himself and felt awake and full of energy - his goats had just discovered coffee! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1390/comment/20597/
