Carrowkeel Cairn

Ireland»Connacht»Carrowkeel Cairn

Carrowkeel Cairn: This megalithic cemetery is superbly situated on limestone ridges in different townlands, of which Carrowkeel is only one. There are cairns in Keshcorran to the West, as well as a dozen tombs and two megalithic kists in the main necropolis, which has clearly been laid out with an eye to the unique landscape of rocky spurs. There are magnificent views from the cairns over Lough Arrow to the east, and north to Knocknarea and Ben Bulben. Some of the rock-faces are steep, and there are extensive patches of peat-bog and heather on the ridges and in the deep fissures.
