Schot writes, "Uisneach’s association with fire, for example, is well known; according to dindshenchas, it is the place where Mide, the chief druid of Nemed, lit the sacred flame that ‘shed the fierceness of fire … [for seven years] over the four quarters of Erin’, while elsewhere we see the landscape shrouded in a ‘cloud of fire’ and ‘five streams of fire’ emanating from its hinterland."
