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 436th highest in Ireland.

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. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/368/comment/1480/
