The hero referred to in the name Carn an Mhaoin is Diarmuid Ó Duibhne, a well-known character in the Fionn Cycle of tales. There is a local tradition of climbing this peak on the first Sunday in June, known as "Lá Charn an Mhaoin". This information comes from the writings of Seaghán ‘ac Meanman of Glenties (1886 – 1962). Many thanks to Ciarán Ó Duibhín for drawing our attention to this. Go raibh mile maith agat, a Chiaráin! This peak is in the townland of Disert (par. of Inver) and is named Craig on the 1st edition OS 6” map.
