Ontop of this short mountain is a big Cairn made from stones. The stones block a passage way to the tomb of Queen Meave who ruled the provinces in around 3000BC. Around the area, between the mountain and a nearby lake are several "Giant Graves" which contain the Queens chieftians. These tombs were excavated in the 1980's and thousands of ironage tools and pottery were found.
