Cnoc Fírinne is strongly associated with fairies. Mentioned in Aodhagán Ó Rathaille's poems and in the Fionn tales, it was regarded as the seat of a deity or fairy-king called Donn Fírinne. It was also the focus of a Lughnasa gathering. It seems that Fíreann ('truth') is a re-interpretation of an old personal name Frigriu, with genitive Frigrinn. For origin of name, see Ó Maolfabhail, LECL. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 201-06) for details of the festive assembly on the hill. Locally also spelt Knockfierna.
