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.

Drung presents a pleasing conical appearance as one approaches from the north east. Easily accessible off the Ring of Kerry road a few miles south of Glenbeigh. Park along the old road that parallels the new road and join the Kerry Way at V618 886 J following the very scenic 'Mountain Stage' to the top of the pass. From here swing up the slope for a steep, but pretty dry ascent. Due to its height at 2100 ft and prominence, its views across Dingle Bay are hard to beat.
