Knockma Hill (Queen Maeves Hill)



Knockma, the great Hill of Maeve is situated 8km west of Tuam. Maeve, the legendary Queen of Connacht, and Ceasair, one of the earliest colonists of Ireland, are reputed to be buried in the cairns on the summit of the hill. Tradition as well as popular superstition, also points to Knockma as the home of fairy legend for here Finvarra, the King of the Connacht fairies, is reputed to hold his court. From the summit of Knockma may be obtained one of the grandest panoramic views in Ireland.
