Quick Reference

Range of hills (highest 1,733 feet) on the borders of counties Offaly and Laois named for the Milesian invader Bladma. Action in many Fenian stories takes place here. According to one text, Muirenn takes refuge here while pregnant and thus gives birth to Demne (Fionn mac Cumhaill) in the hills. See John Feehan, The Landscape of Slieve Bloom (Dublin, 1979).
