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 410th highest in Ireland.

New Comment: Take the righteous path
by muddyboots  5 Dec 2019
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/
