Summit of Slieve na Calliagh
Summit of Slieve na Calliagh
Highest point in Co Meath. Also an ancient burial chamber. This is also the site of one of the largest tombs (Cairn T) - a classic example with a cross-shaped chamber underground, topped by an enormous cairn 35m in diameter. (Access to the inside of the burial chamber is possible by obtaining a key from a nearby caretaker - location details from a notice board in the car park)
