The megalithic cemetery of Carrowkeel, consisting of a complex of neolithic passage tombs, is situated on the Bricklieve Mountains. Despite their relatively low height, these hills are remarkably rugged. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 187-88) for details of the festive assembly at Carricknahorna or Skein Hill on the southern edge of the Bricklieve Mountains.   Bricklieve Mountains is the second highest hill in the Bricklieve/Curlew area and the 1102th highest in Ireland.

From the N4 at Castlebaldwin (a possible former home of Alec?) follow the Carrowkeel Megalithic Cemetery sign posts, sometimes just saying Tombs south west on a minor road (there is also signs for a Historical Trail). At a road junction at 740122 turn left then take the first right up hill on a small track. Next there is a gate, where some people park, go through and close the gate behind you and drive on further. Shortly come to signs, warning that the rest of the track is unsuitable for coaches!, not with standing the interesting sight that a coach turning or meeting another vehicle on this track would make, you can park here. Those who drive a pretend 4 wheel drive jeep or indeed the real McCoy can drive further till 752121 B, where there is space for 2 cars / rancheros, cross out as applicable. Note!, the track to here has pot holes and only one possible passing place, it is not the road you would want to have to reverse far on, better to park by the signs.

From 752121 B walk south east up hill, on a well trod route, to the first Megalithic Tomb, once you crawl into the chamber it is high enough to stand up. The second Tomb is a lot tighter, but you can still crawl in, make sure to bring the torch.

After exploring the Tombs walk the short distance to the summit, which has a further two sites either side of the summit. This is an amazing hill for its size, with Megalithic Tombs, Cairns & Hut sites and great views, one visit will not be enough. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/931/comment/3720/
