"The Classical Greeks called Ireland Ogygia and they called nothing Ogygia except that which was teh most ancient!"

The Paps of Anu are a pair of breast shaped mountains near Killarney in County Kerry, Ireland. The eastern summit, The Paps East, is 694 metres (2,277 ft) high[2] and the western top, The Paps West is 690 metres (2,260 ft) high.

The mountains are named after Anu; believed to have been an ancient mother goddess. Cormac's Glossary describes Anu or Danu as "the mother of the gods of Ireland"
