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 1215th highest place in Ireland. Slieve Na Calliagh is the highest point in county Meath.

Summit in bloom
by csd  9 May 2010
Coming from Kells on the R163, keep an eye out for the signs directing you to Loughcrew and you won't go wrong. The car park is at N58205 77519 A, and it's a very short walk up the well-marked trail to the summit. As others have noted, excellent views on a fine day, and keep the dog on the leash until you're inside the fenced-in area containing the summit cairns. It sems that someone has added a bit of colour to the ruins by planting some tulips, which were in full bloom on this lovely May day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/976/comment/4696/
