Queen Maeve is bured in County Sligo
cze 2020
Lovely ramblers walk, not too hard and very enjoyable, nature at its beset.
BUT ..... sorry folks, I know the Galwegians like to say Queen Maeve is buried here but she is not, she is buried on the top of KnocknaRea in County Sligo.

Bring drinks, this is a hearty walk,
Misgaun Medb/Maeve's Cairn in Co. Sligo, is the best known burial site of Queen Maeve, but it is one of three possible sites. Bronze or Iron Age burials though, it would be common enough to hack an important dead person apart and bury bits of them along different boundaries, for protection and guardianship. Another story goes that she is buried on the Hill of Knockma (Cnoc Mag in Irish, Hill of the Plain), near Belclare in Co. Galway, which is also where Fionnbharr, King of the Connacht Sidhe, or fairyfolk, holds court. Rathcroghan, County Roscommon is the third, and most likely burial site, with a long low slab named Misgaun Medb being given as the probable location. In the theory of many body parts in many places, this is where her head (the place of the soul, according to thinking of the time) would be. Or possibly her heart?

Family Friendly Walk
kwi 2017 • Dla rodziny
Heard about Knockma / Chnoc Meá or Cnoc Meadha (take your pick) recently and decided to visit. Having moved to nearby (13k) we had been looking for somewhere to go for a walk with young kids infant and toddler. Thankfully we tried here parking facilities good wide path with a solid surface stroller friendly (we have a stroller with 4 large wheels). You walk up a path from where you park then you come to a little picnic area with chairs tables and little fairy houses / mushrooms carved from tree trunks. You have an option of going left or right its a circular path that brings you around the top of the hill there a view points along the route one looking out towards Lough Corrib which is beautiful. You can also make your way up to the very summit however we didn't attempt this, with older kids and no stroller to contend with it would be doable. The hill is named after the legendary Queen of Connacht Meádh / Maeve who rumour has it is buried in the cairn at the top of the hill. Also along the route are lots of fairy doors at the foot of different trees. Each with the name of the fairy who lives there on them. There are several other features to see along the trail and it is a very pleasant walk and we will definitely use this facility often. There were lots of people of all ages out walking and jogging which was great to see. I'm only sorry we didn't come across this place sooner.

Maive Hill or Knock Ma Woods?
cze 2016 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
This entry seems to be confused with the nearby Knock Ma woods hiking trails. The map took us to a clearing on a gravel road between farm fields with a stunning view to the north and east.

Lovely walk

A lovely place to go for a walk or a run. Can't wait for the top of the hill to be developed and opened to the public.

It was a lovely place to go for a walk on a Sunday morning. A great place to get some exercise and fresh air and the place feels so special. A serious amount of history here.
