The Fairy Ring

Ballymacdermot Court Tomb at Sunset, Co Armagh, N Ireland
Taken during a beautiful cloud inversion as the Sun set at Ballymacdermot Court Tomb

Located on a level terrace on the southeastern slopes of Sleive Gullion is a well-preserved court tomb known as Ballymacdermot Cairn. From this site panoramic views over the plain ofMeigh, Slieve Gullion and the ring dyke hills to the south can be enjoyed, a phenomenon that surely did not escape the early farming communities who built it over 6,000 years ago. Locally known as 'The Cashla', it is also spoken of as 'The Graves', and 'The Fairy Ring', and is reputed to be haunted.
