There were many great people in Ireland long ago. Finn Mac Cumhail and the Fianna were the best.
It is said that on one occasion the Fianna passed over a mountain in this called Sliabh Carron. It was late so they camped on a grassy place. Fionn was tired so he camped on a flat rock. He put two stones standing up straight and one on top and one at the side. He slept there for the night by himself. The tent is there yet.
