Loughcrew Cairns, Oldcastle, Co. Meath

The Loughcrew Cairns are Neolithic tombs, dating back to 3,500 BC (Older than the pyramids). Each equinox, the sunrise lights the chamber of Cairn T,  proving this ancient society were well acquainted with astronomy.
Many stories are connected to this prehistoric site including that of the Cailleach or witch/goddess. According to the Legend, the Loughcrew cairns were formed by the Cailleach throwing rocks from her apron, jumping from hill to hill. It is said that she tripped and died and is buried on Patrickstown, one of the hills. The area, known today as Sliabh na Caillí or Mountain of the Witch, reflects this age-old story.
