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.   Maumakeogh is the 999th highest place in Ireland.

New Comment: Wet and Boggy
by TommyV  Mon 9 Sep
I followed the directions provided by sandman and I would second his opinion that this one is a summit bagging exercise. Very little to recommend about this one! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/868/comment/20648/

When in North Mayo

I would not make a trip especially to visit this hill and would only do it as a summit bagging excerise. Park at G06922 37808 A and head towards summit at G03703 36823 B app 3.5km away keeping right at end of bog pass to Famine cottage at G05762 37618 C which will allow you to ford the stream even on a wet day, From the cottage its a slog over heather and boggy high grass to the summit - do not hand rail the forest as the under foot conditions are better to the right. You need height before views appear across to Downpatrick Head, Belderg Harbour Glinsk - Nephin and its neighbours. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/868/comment/14727/
