The archaeological complex on several of the tops of these hills, consisting of passage tombs with megalithic art on their walls, is best known as Loughcrew. This is the name of a townland and a parish in the area, and the complex lies within this parish. Several of the most important monuments in the complex are located in the townland of Carnbane. The name Sliabh na Caillí refers to the Cailleach Bhéirre or Hag of Beara. Here she is said to have jumped from one hill to the next, dropping stones from her apron to form the cairns.   Slieve Na Calliagh is the 1209th highest place in Ireland. Slieve Na Calliagh is the highest point in county Meath.

Dodging Thunder and Lightning
by paddyobpc  24 Jan 2017
Walk Date: 06 Jun 2016. As we arrived at Carnbane East (Slieve Na Calliagh) the CHP of county Meath, Mother Nature was roaring again, there were a few claps of thunder and flashes of lightening. We had read that it was a short trek across a field to the summit which was also the home of Loughcrew Megalithic Cairns. In minutes we were at the top and at that stage the thunder and Lightning was very frequent and quite harsh, Dillon(dillonkdy) allowed me take one picture and I pushed for two before we literally flew off that hillside back to the car. We will have to return at our leisure to see the Cairns in more detail another time (we were there less than 15 minutes for this visit) but for now our two day mission was complete, 8 CHP’s done, thanks to my sister Helen for walking with us and well done to Dillon(dillonkdy), a great achievement, a total of 14 counties covered so far in the challenge. The long drive to County Cork via the outskirts of Dublin remained and the lightening lit up the road frequently for the journey. See Dillon’s (dillonkdy) full story of his County High Point Challenge at https://dillons32chpchallenge.github.io/progress/index.html We also found Kieron Gribbon's High Point Ireland website (www.highpointireland.com) to be a useful source of information for our 32 County High Points challenge. Definitely worth checking out if you're planning to do any of the High Point challenges. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/976/comment/18816/
