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 1210th highest place in Ireland. Slieve Na Calliagh is the highest point in county Meath.

Short Summary created by jackill,  3 Jul 2010
Turn off the road up a narrow lane at N58287 76565 A (note it is very easy to miss the lane) and drive uphill to the large carpark at N58206 77532 B.
From there climb some rocky steps , through a gate, and a few minutes will see you to the summit area.
The Lough Crew Passage Tombs make up one of the four main passage tomb sites in Ireland (the others are Brú na Bóinne, Carrowkeel and Carrowmore). They are thought to date from about 3300 BC. The sites consist of cruciform chambers covered in most instances by a mound. A unique style of megalithic petroglyphs are seen there, including lozenge shapes, leaf shapes, as well as circles, some surrounded by radiating lines.
