The mountain of women is a real place.

The Mountain of Women: there are two sources for the name. The view of the mountain resembles a reclining lady of mountainous proportions. It also alludes to the legend of Fionn MacCool's task set for the ladies of Ireland to select a wife. He had a race to the top of the mountain and there were a lot of participants. It was fixed, of course, by the 'little people' so that the right girl won. naturally.
