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.

Concur with paddyhillsbagger about three5four0's description as being accurate and much better than I could give. Wife and I were bone idle and drove up to very end of the track, although rough its quite passable with care in a car. Views were reasonable but would have been stuuning if the day was better. If you want a place to appreciate burial tombs which is relatively remote but easy to get to, only a few kms from the N4, this is your place. And if you are short of time you can drive right up like me and have it bagged within a half hour of the N4. Very nice place, really is worth a return visit with time to explore and see more. Liked this one a lot! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/931/comment/4147/
