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

Did a bit of a rush job on this as I was racing around the day I was here bagging the county high points of Meath, Westmeath, and Longford. Which is a pity as this has to be the most interesting county high point in the country. I wasn't even aware of the historical importance of the site until I happened upon it on my high point quest. It definately attracts less attention than Tara or Newgrange. Will definitely have to go back for a more thorough look some day Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/976/comment/3322/
