The northern slopes of the wooded Trumpet Hill
Enshrined in ancient Irish legends, Trumpet Hill is an outlier of the Cooley Mountain. The image was taken from the L3085. In the Irish legend Táin Bó Cuailnge it is called the Hill of Ochaine. It was here that the teenager Cúchulainn slaughtered many hundreds of the invading Queen Medb's most gallant warriors with his slingshot.
