The Cailleach Bhéirre is remembered in several names on and around Slieve Gullion. A passage tomb on the summit is known as Calliagh Birra’s House. This is one of the highest megalithic tombs in the country (after those on Slieve Donard and the Paps in Kerry). The legend is that when Fionn Mac Cumhaill was enticed inside, he went fresh and youthful but emerged as an exhausted old man. A small lake on the plateau north of the summit is called Calliagh Berra’s Lough. Lower down in the townland of Aghadavoyle on a hillock called Spellick is a rock feature known as the Cailleach Bearea’s Chair. This is was regularly visited on 'Blaeberry Sunday', when everybody on the outing would take a turn to sit in the chair. It is recorded by Máire MacNeill as a Lughnasa site (160-61).   Slieve Gullion is the second highest mountain in the Cooley/Gullion area and the 353rd highest in Ireland. Slieve Gullion is the highest point in county Armagh.

My last Mourne/Cooley >500m mountain - hesitated doing it due to the reports of frequent breaking into cars. There is plenty of evidence of continuing problems, broken glass and multiple skid marks in the two upper car parks. However, a 6am start from Dublin on Good Friday caught most of the thieves by surprise.

Took the route described by mneary34, starting in the car park at J 018 200 E. A straightforward 30 minute climb from here takes you to the Sth cairn. Nth cairn and Calliagh Beara's Lough are a further 10 minute walk. Excellent views in all directions.

The "one-way" system is quite confusing, especially since every car I met was travelling in the wrong direction !!!!!!!!

The photo shows the entrance to the passage grave - described as the highest in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/322/comment/2281/
