Martin Byrne, sacred Ireland expert, tour guide and musician brings us Carrowkeel in South Sligo
Martin Byrne lives in Cliffony in north County Sligo, but he spent many years living at Carrowkeel, close to the shores of Lough Arrow. Carrowkeel is a 5000-year-old megalithic complex of ancient buildings that served as tombs scattered across the summits of the Bricklieve Mountains. This area is in the close company of other megalithic sites that include Kesh Corran also known as the caves of kesh, the Heapstown Cairn, Creevykeel Court Tomb, Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery, Knocknarea – the sacred mountain with the large cairn on top.
