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 435th highest in Ireland.

What can I say about Mauherslieve? It really is one of those mountains that will have you asking yourself "What am I doing? Started out at the livestock pen mentioned by csd. It is important to note that the first 200 metres between the pen and the forestry entrance at R87768 63721 C goes through private farmland and while there is a road it's not fenced off and the day I went there were bullocks running around the field. Stay to the right on the forestry track and take the left track at R87467 63500 D. Follow this track for about a kilometer. You will see Mauherslieve on your left, keep an eye out for a break in the trees and that is the route to take.

There is a gap in the ditch at R86945 62605 E, and this is where the real fun/ordeal begins. From here you will have to cross 100 metres of the worst ground with felled trees, stumps, holes, pools of water, heather, tussocky grass and newly planted tress. I assume once these get a bit bigger this route will not be an option. Once you get to the break in the tress the underfoot does not improve much but with a bit of hard work you will soon be on the open mountain. There is a 500 meters of heathery boggy ground to contend with here before you reach the trig point at the summit. The day I climbed here, the open mountain was covered in fog so I can't comment on any views, but I will NOT be going back on a fine day to see them.

Purely for hardened summiteers, if you insist on doing this one, look for a better way up! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/368/comment/20209/
