Also referred to as Mother Mountain in some sources, though this seems to have no basis. Locally also called Moherclea or simply Moher. A pile of stones at the summit is called the Terrot. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 214-15) for details of the festive assembly which took place on Mauherslieve at the end of June.   Mauherslieve is the second highest mountain in the Shannon area and the 434th highest in Ireland.

Take the righteous path

Well worth a visit but don’t use this as a summit to be a trend setter! Use the Kilcommon Pilgrim Loop to access the well signposted waymarked way to the summit. Park at R89506121 A and follow pilgrim path in reverse until point D on the National Trails map shown and simply follow markers to one marked for the summit. This is about 500m from point D - R88606140 B. The time of 2 hrs from that point indicated on the market post is wrong - easily done in 1 hour. Avoids all the bog others have fallen foul of and the path is well worn, trampling the heather grasses. A bit misty the day I went but still great views. Up and down in 2 hours. A distance of 6.5 km and a walk anyone with moderate fitness could do. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/368/comment/20691/

The final push up to Slievemauher is a wee bit tiring if you're out of shape: you have to lift your legs up high to get through the deep heather. That said, you can easily make the summit in about an hour if you park by the livestock pen noted in my other comment. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/368/comment/2647/

Mother Mountain seems to be rarely climbed. It is tucked away behind Keeper Hill and many Tipperary people have never heard of it. The climb is straightforward if a little steep. It's rather short for a days outing and there doesn't seem to be any obvious other routes to link to it. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/368/comment/551/

Took the accompanying snap of a milky sun having just risen behind the Mauherslieve and got the peculiar effect of a giant sun appearing to be in front of the hill. Followed csd's suggested route and was up and down in 1.5 hours, although the climb after the forestry track is sheer torture - very uneven terrain covered with heather!

A view of Keeper Hill from Mother Mountain. Mother Mountain is not a very interesting or challenging climb, being mainly covered in forestry. However there are very good views of
the surrounding hills from the summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/368/comment/1480/
