Mystic Lake ( Lough Dhá Géanna )
by swoop  15 May 2011
Under Sliabh Dá Éan ('mountain of two birds) lies a small but beautiful hidden lake.
Legend has it that got its name Lough Dhá Géanna from the story of king Sweeney. Sweeny was a king condemned by an angry cleric to wander, naked and nervous as a bird throughout Ireland.Any sharp sound , like the ringing of a bell, would send Sweeney into madness. Because of the curse he began to levitate and move about like a bird. Being bird-like he could never trust humans but fled from place to place, naked and hungry. Near Lough Gill, in the eastern Ox mountains , Sweeney fought with a Cailleach, a wise woman, and both of them in their struggle transformed into geese and dived into the lake. Never to be seen again.

Its an amazingly still place, you can hear the silence. The lakes water is bog brown, the stone ring surrounding it is bleached white. A mystical site worth the walk. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/978/comment/6350/
