The neolithic farming complex of the Céide Fields lies on the northern slopes. Mám an Cheo is the title of a poem which talks of agricultural life and coring (Ir. comhar, co-operation between neighbours in the tasks of farming). It is available in Amhráin Chearbhalláin (Poems of Carolan, Irish Texts Society, edited by Tomás Ó Máille, 249-51), though it is one of the poems in the collection not attributed to Carolan.
