A fair was held regularly on Drung Hill (Barrington, 'Discovering Kerry', p. 267), which would account for the throng. There is another hill of the same name near Lauragh on the Beara Peninsula. Barrington connects Drung Hill in Iveragh with the 'kingdom of Drung', which apparently paid a tribute of thirty oxen to Cashel. Leacht Fhionáin on Drung Hill is the reputed grave of St. Fionán. It is not at the summit, as marked on the Discovery map, but on a knoll halfway down the N. slope. The penitential station and well were visited on the last Sunday of July (MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa', pp. 134-37).   Drung Hill is the 218th highest place in Ireland.

I followed the same route up to Drung Hill as Roadie. Parked the car on a small byroad (ref V 616888 D), just off the N70 (Glenbeigh to Caherciveen road). After leaving the car, we initially walked south east for about 0.25km and picked up the Kerry Way at V 619887 E. This part of the Kerry way follows along by the coastline and it's not long before you are looking down on Rossbeigh beach, Inch strand and Dingle Bay. We approached Drung hill from the western side. While it's not very high it is pretty steep for the last 10 minutes before you reach the trig point and it certainly got the pulse going. I was very fortunate to have a very clear, sunny spring day for this walk which consisted of Been Hill, Beann Mor, Mullaghnarakill, Coomacarrea Tooth, TeerMoyle, Coomacarrea and Meentog.
