Knockma Hill in Ireland is a place full of myth and mystery

The hill has been made famous due to its historical importance and to the fairy legends that surround it. Two of the three Cairns at the summit are said to be the resting place of Queen Maeve of Connacht and Ceasair, one of the first goddesses of Ireland. She was a granddaughter to Noah. When she was refused entry onto the ark, she decided to create her own ark and led a group of people to Ireland in the hopes of starting fresh there. The central cairn of the three is named Carn Ceasra, after her. Another of the Cairns was remodelled as Finnbheara’s (Finnvara) Castle. The place where Finnbheara the King of the Connacht fairies holds his court of Daoine Sidhe. In some legends he is also referred to as being the King of the Dead.
