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 1214th highest place in Ireland. Slieve Na Calliagh is the highest point in county Meath.

The Loughcrew Gardens website (www.loughcrew.com) describes these cairns as the best kept secret in archaeological Ireland. They're not joking. We were lucky to be there at the same time as someone with a key to the cairn on top of Carnbane East. We're coming back next March. Only fifty people out of 32,955, applied successfully to be at Newgrange this December for the winter solstice. Turn up at Loughcrew on March 21 or September 22 for something nearly as good. See www.knowth.com/loughcrew-equinox-video.htm for a flavour. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/976/comment/4143/
