    Clusters of Megalithic Cairns are dotted around the Slieve na Caillaigh hills at Loughcrew, Co. Meath. Ancient burial grounds are dating back to 3500 and 3300 BC.  However less famous than Newgrange, Loughcrew twenty tree tombs in addition to main two Cairns, are surrounded by breathtaking Irish landscape. Equinox illumination at sunrise in Cairn T, brings to light backstone, wonderfully decorated with solar symbols.
