Slieve na Calliagh (Irish: Sliabh na Caillí, meaning "the hag's mountain") is the highest peak in a low range of hills in northwest County Meath. The hills are notable as the location of the Loughcrew Megalithic Tomb Cemetery. The rays of the equinox sunrise shine down the passageway of the Cairn T and illuminate an inner chamber filled with megalithic stonecarvings
