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.

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. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/368/comment/551/
