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 1212th highest summit in Ireland. Slieve Na Calliagh is the highest point in county Meath.

Meaths highest point (Correct me please if I'm wrong). Very easy to climb to the top of. To get to it simply take the Kells to Oldcastle road R183 and look out for the little road up to the right which brings you to a good sized car park only a few hundred metres walk from the top.
The views on a good day are terrific as being in Meath and having nothing much around it height-wise there's unobstructed views of the Westmeath lakes, the Mornes, the Cavan drumlins, and the peatlands of Kildare and Offaly, as well of course as the Wicklow mountains.
The top is a megalithic site with burial chambers, and the like, and is part of a complex which includes nearby hills which have smaller burial sites, although I'm not actually certain that these are fully accessible as this whole area is on private land. There are OPW signs to give you a flavour of the history at the car park and on the top.
Well worth a few minutes if you are passing on your Sunday jaunt, No dogs off the lead though, sheep are in abundance. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/976/comment/3287/
