Binn Mhór overlooks Mám Éan. This is the site of a pattern held annually on the last Sunday of July, known locally as Domhnach Mhám Éan and as Domhnach Chrom Dubh (MacNeill, 123). It is also visited on St. Patrick's Day and Good Friday. Roderic O'Flaherty wrote in 1684: At Mam-en, there springs out of a stone a litle water, named from St. Patrick, which is a present remedy against murrein in cattel, not only applyed, but alsoe as soon as tis sent for they begin to have ease. next Mam-en are the mountains of Corcoga, in the confines of Balynahynsy [Ballynahinch], Ross and Moycullin countreys, where the fat deere is frequently hunted; whereof no high mountain in the barony of Balynahinsy, or the half barony of Rosse is destitude (O'Flaherty, 121-22). This peak has been called Shannakeala.   Binn Mhór is the third highest mountain in the Maamturks area and the 178th highest in Ireland.
