Got Maeve? ...a visit to Sligo and Knocknarea

Today (Tuesday) we visited Sligo to see the burial sites of W. B. Yeats at Drumcliff churchyard and the cairn at the top of Knocknarea, the burial site of Queen Maeve, the queen of the Druid chieftians. The hike was steep in parts, but worth every step of the way for the panoramic views of all of Sligo as well as Ben Bulben in the distance.
