The Moylehid townland contains archeological evidence of neolithic settlement in the form of the Eagle’s Knoll Cairn passage tomb and Moylehid ring cairn. Both of these are scheduled monuments and were uncovered by the archeologist Thomas Plunkett in 1894.
The cairn or passage grave has a cross shaped arrangement, 13 ft long and 7 ft 4 inches wide and is divided by means of partitions into 7 areas.
A number of artifacts have been discovered in these chambers including cremated and uncremated bones, ornamented stone beads,human skulls, animals bones such as birds, boars, sea shells, a stone hammer and ornamented urns (which are on display in the National Museum of Ireland which is in Dublin)
