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 1211th highest summit in Ireland. Slieve Na Calliagh is the highest point in county Meath.

Slieve na Callaigh or Lough Crew and Carnbane East all appear to be the same place. Just three different names. Just Like MurphySw said it has to be the most interesting high point in the Country. I hadn't a clue as to it's historic significance until my friend Aideen and I with a teenager each got there. Luckily it was in august and a local guide was in attendance. We are going back Saturday at sunrise to see the sun shine into the cave. By the way its Neolithic not Megalithic!! We decided in July to do all 32 Highest Points in each County. This Saturday we are also going to do Slieve Foye in Louth Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/976/comment/3324/
