Carrowmore is one of the four major passage tomb complexes in Ireland (see also Bru na Boinne). It is located at the geographical centre of the Cúil Irra peninsula 3 km west of Sligo town.  It is also one of the largest (in terms of number of monuments) complexes of megalithic tombs in Ireland dating to approximately 3700 BC.  The weather broke from the time we arrived until we departed, so we had the benefit of deep color from the rain and bright sunlight when the clouds shifted.
