Eagle's Nest Mountain

Eagle's Nest Mountain, Killarney.

The highest mountain in Ireland, Carrantual, at one side lifts its lofty brow, "crowned with tiaras fashioned in the sky." On its summit an outlaw, known in Munster as the "Shon" or Hawk, after many sleepless nights, footsore and weary, slept here with a prayer, "Thank God, at last I am above all my enemies."
