Heapstown Cairn - Hosted By


It is claimed that the Heapstown Cairn, in Castlebaldwin County Sligo, is the largest cairn in Ireland outside of the Boyne Valley.

Heapstown Cairn has not been excavated but is believed to be a passage tomb some 60 metres in diameter. The Cairn was much larger but huge amounts of it were removed to build roads and walls, thankfully this has now stopped. The Cairn is about 20 feet high and the kerbstones are visible around most of the it, but as you can see from the picture at the bottom left it is difficult to see if there are any markings on them.
