Remains of megalithic cemetery!

And 'the largest cemetery of megalithic tombs in Ireland and the second in Europe. The remains date back more than 5000 years ago and you can visit the graves of thirty sixty far discovered. In addition to the impressive sight of the dolmens and stone circles you can dive even deeper into place by visiting the exhibition housed in a restored old cottage. You can not come away without facing the road on Knocknarea Mountain, paved with pebbles and crossed by docile cows that graze in the surrounding area (see the video). This hill close to the churchyard has on its top a dolmen, the tomb of the fierce Celtic Queen Maeve of Connaught!

Resti del cimitero megalitico!

E' il più grande cimitero di tombe megalitiche in Irlanda e il secondo in Europa. I resti risalgono a più di 5000 anni fa e si possono visitare una trentina di tombe sulle sessanta fino ad adesso scoperte. Oltre allo spettacolo suggestivo dei dolmen e dei circoli di pietre è possibile immergersi ancora di più nel luogo visitando la mostra ospitata in un vecchio cottage ristrutturato.
Non è possibile venire via senza affrontare la strada che porta sul Knocknarea Mountain, lastricata da ciottoli e percorsa da mansuete mucche che pascolano nei dintorni (guardate il video).
Questa collina vicinissima al cimitero ospita sulla sua cima un dolmen, la tomba della feroce regina celtica Maeve di Connaught!
