The hill of Uisneach lies close to the town of Killare. This would be in the center of Ireland. The top of Uisneach stands at 180 metres. There is a great view from the hill and it is a great tourist attraction. The first men to arrive in this area came around 3000 BC. That would be the time of the bronze age going on to the medieval period. It takes from the name a cat watching a mouse which is familiar to the people in the area known as 'Catstone'.
