Follow the track through the pass in the Bricklieve Hills and enter another world.
Bricklieve derives from Breac Sliabh, “the Speckled Hills", in old Irish "speckled" was a term used to describe places of entrance to other worlds, thin places.
While many Neolithic sites have become sterile, their power lost amid roads and modern noise and the footfalls of thousands, Carrowkeel retains it’s depth and energy.
To climb to the cairns, on a day when the low cloud shrouds every horizon and the world is reduced to the hilltop around you, is to immerse yourself in a time gone these 5000 years.
To crawl on your hands and knees through the portal and to sit inside is to understand true liminality. On certain days the energy within has been overwhelming, crawling out dizzy, disoriented to sit in thoughtful recovery for a while.
This is a special place.
