Rough Camping In Mayo - Day 2 - And A Bit Of Sligo, too

We woke up to a glorious morning after camping by a beautiful beach. After eating and making sure we had left no rubbish lying around we decided to head back towards Sligo and see some monuments on the way. We went to see Carrowkilleen (County Mayo) first - how could I resist taking Tatjana to see three court tombs in one spot? Sadly this monument has become very, very overgrown.

After that we drove around near Aughris Head in Sligo and Tatjana pointed out some amazing mounds and barrows that I will visit in the New Year. We then went to the portal tomb at Ardabrone (County Sligo) and spoke to the farmer who told us a very interesting bit of folklore about the site.
