Kilmacoliver Hill Tomb

Impressive Pre-historic Enclosure of Standing Stones

Overlooking Tullahought village from the summit of Bawnfree (900 ft.) is a circular enclosure of standing stones which date to the pre-historic era. Only the weathered remains are now visible and it can be viewed in the distance from the route of a National Walk from Tullahought village.

The name Kilmacoliver derives from a later date and means Mac Oliver’s Church, where a castle once stood overlooking the Lingaun Valley.
