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.

Thylacine on Slieve Na Calliagh, 2009
by Thylacine  11 May 2009
As the highest point in the county in which I currently reside, and one of the closer tops listed on MV to where I live, it seemed like a handy, pleasant, family friendly one to mark my pathetic second notch on my lists. It is all that, and more. Information posted about Slieve Na Cailligh here already refer to the wonderful views to the Mournes in the north and the Dublin mountains in the south.A stunning day for it (10-05-09), and it really is as easy a stroll as one could ask for. I'm reluctant to even call it a climb,though it was highly enjoyable. I am indebted to other posters here (paulocon, Geo, Audi-Anne etc) for info on the history of the site and the suitability of it for a more family oriented climb. My four year old wasn't challenged, or exhausted. Odd to see a sheep carcass (picked clean and incomplete) in one corner of the outer fenced area on the southern facing side. The car park (N53.44.645 W 7.07.120) makes it extremely accessible and the views were being enjoyed by a few people, but it certainly was not what you would call over crowded on a beautiful, bright, warm day in early May. To say the ancient sites provide added intrest is an understatement. The fascinating constructions offer plenty to explore and the carvings are impressive for a site, I, in my ignorance knew little of 36 hours ago. There were some new age ladies performing some quiet, personal paganistic rite there, shame they didn't heed Geo's advice though as thier two dogs tried to make a snack of my tethered little fella! Seemed to be nice ladies though. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/976/comment/3755/
