Any idea what the highest passage grave in Ireland is? Obviously Seefin in the Wicklows is higher than Slieve Gullion... GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Well now there's a thing Gladman. See, I was taking the lead from the notice boards, understanding that they meant the whole of the two islands, and from greywether when he says "At 1894 feet [573 metres], this is said to be the highest surviving passage grave in the British Isles.", again meaning the whole of the two islands. But of course you're right, the Seefin passage grave is higher, at 620.6 metres to be precise. However, this: says that the southern cairn is "the highest surviving passage grave in Ireland." and references this: and I'm understanding they mean Ireland, north and south.
So, all I can offer is, they're both wrong, so is greywether and so was I to repeat the error. Seefin is the highest.

But of course you've been to Seefin a few times.... recommendation to people interested in Ireland's high places is to try to get to both :-) GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN
