Knocknarea from Streamstown

This photograph was taken from Streamstown, County Sligo looking across Ballisodare Bay towards Knocknarea mountain on a spring morning in 2008

Knocknarea mountain (327m) 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 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.
