The photo shows two passage-tombs, of a group of fourteen, situated at Carrowkeel, on the Bricklieve Mountains, Co. Sligo, overlooking Lough Arrow. For the most part, the entrances to the tombs are facing north-west, and seem to be oriented on the distant Queen Maeve’s Cairn, the great passage tomb on the summit of Knocknarea, near Sligo. Whether this is significant or not is a matter for debate.

There is a magnificent view from the tombs and parts of several counties are visible.
