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 998th highest place in Ireland.

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/
