HIGHLIGHTS OF AN UISNEACH TOUR

Map-01-01

 

The Royal Palace

This conjoined (figure of eight) ring fort was the subject of a major archaeological excavation by R.A.S. McAllister in the 1920’s. It revealed the remains of several houses, two souterrains and various other features associated with domestic occupation spanning several centuries.

 

Lough Lugh

Named after the Sun God Lugh and deemed to be the place where he met his mortal end at the hands of Mac Cuill, Mac Cécht and Mac Gréine. The nearby bronze-age prominent mound, Carn Lugdach, is said to have been raised in his honour.

 

St.Patricks Bed (The Summit)

From this probable megalithic tomb the view encompasses almost all of Ireland with up to twenty counties being visible on a clear day. St Patrick is said to have established a presence here during the fifth century.

 

The Catstone

The most famous feature on Uisneach is undoubtedly Ail na Mireann (the stone of divisions), known as The Catstone. It is also known as Umbilicus Hinerniae, Axis Mundi and the navel of Ireland. This huge glacial erratic symbolises Ireland, united in its divisions and it marks the centre of Ireland where the provinces came together. It is underneath this stone that Éiru, after whom the country is named, was laid to rest.
