Knocknarea from Deerpark

This photograph of Knocknarea Mountain was taken from Deerpark, Calry, looking across Sligo town. It is a panorama photograph made up of seven photos stitched together to form a single image.

Knocknarea mountain (327m) is situated on the Coolera peninsula and is a commanding landmark that can be seen from much of county Sligo. The mountain is caped by a huge cairn which is over 10m high, one of the largest tombs of this type in Ireland. This cairn is know as Queen Meave's Grave or Miosgan Meadhbha and said to be the burial place of the legendary warrior Queen Meave of Connaught, buried upright on her horse in full battle regalia and facing her enemies from Ulster.
