Schot observes, "...on the basis of the large quantities of disarticulated animal bone found in the ditch and in the interior of the Penannular Enclosure,7 it would seem that Macalister and Praeger were correct in their assumption that periodic 'feasting' formed a significant component of activity carried out at the site."
In a later article, Schot wrote, "The tale Tucait Baile Mongáin (‘Mongán’s Frenzy’), for instance, describes how a great hailstorm during an assembly on the hill ‘left twelve chief streams in Ireland for ever’, and is also one of the earliest sources to emphasize the liminal status of Uisneach as a meeting point between the temporal and otherworld spheres."
