"On the last Sunday in July the people of Mountrath, Trumera, and the surrounding districts go up on the Slieve Bloom Mountains, on to the slopes of Ard Erin. They bring with them food, and spend the day on the mountain. There are all kinds of games and trials of strength, and in the evening they kindle big fires, and the young men run races round the fires, and the more daring of them leap over the fires. In this district, this Sunday is called Height Sunday." (Helen Roe in Béaloideas ix, p. 31). See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 221-25) for a fuller account of the festive assembly on 'Height Sunday' on Arderin.
