The Sleeping Cailleach

Overlooking the frozen winter landscape sits the Loughcrew cairn. Situated just outside Oldcastle, Co. Meath, this ancient monument is approximately 5400 years old and is older than the pyramids of Egypt. Legend has it that it was formed by the Cailleach (Goddess/witch) who threw rocks from her apron. The Cailleach was a Goddess of the land and went under the name of Garbhóg (Garavogue) or the Cailleach Bhéara. Here we see her resting as the winter reigns over the icy land, waiting till the approach of Spring and the coming Equinox when the rising sun will light the chamber of Cairn T, atop the distant hill.
