Loughcrew Books

Loughcrew The Cairns a guide

Loughcrew The Cairns a guide by Jean McMann. Introduction to the cairns at Loughcrew in County Meath, Ireland. First published in 1993 by the local After Hours Books based in nearby Oldcastle, this short guild (48 pages) it is selling for inflated prices on Amazon, however it is still available for the cover price at Loughcrew Gardens where the key to Loughcrew Cairn T is kept.


Ollamh Fodhla: Discovery of the Tomb of Ollamh Fodhla, by Eugene A. Conwell. First published in 1873, now available as a facsimile edition, published in 2005. Later research was to prove Loughcrew Cairn T to be a Neolithic (Stone Age) tomb, about two thousand older than proposed in Eugene Conwell's book. However this short book (69 pages) is still worth having for the drawings of the symbols on the Cairns at Loughcrew.
