The megalithic cemetery of Carrowkeel, consisting of a complex of neolithic passage tombs, is situated on the Bricklieve Mountains. Despite their relatively low height, these hills are remarkably rugged. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 187-88) for details of the festive assembly at Carricknahorna or Skein Hill on the southern edge of the Bricklieve Mountains.   Bricklieve Mountains is the 1110th highest place in Ireland.

Starting at G74477 11834 starC along a road on the Miners Way before a sign at G74709 11230 starD indicates it's time to branch off for Carrowkeel. After about 2km the road ends near the summit. Head South East and you will soon come across the first passage tomb. A second one lies a little further on and then the largest one is at the summit of the hill. There are many more tombs in the area, but as the weather was poor I didn't stick around to explore. On a fine day I'm sure the views over Lough Arrow would be lovely.
