Backstone of Loughcrew Cairn T or Hag's Cairn. The Cairn is of similar design to Newgrange on a smaller scale.
Described as a Passage Tomb, the wonderfully decorated backstone shows that the Cairn has a clear astronomical purpose.
A beam of light from the rising sun around the time of the Equinox (March and September) is mapped on the backstone of the Cairn.
