Knocknarea (Cairn(s)) by Cursuswalker The Cairn on top of Maeve's Tomb on top of Knocknarea, looking north east.

The highest two stones had just been added my myself and my father from the beach at Strandhill, just to the West. Very strange to be adding to a site in this way!

There used to be a tradition of removing stones from the tomb for good luck. The tradition has has been partly reversed in recent years.
