Outside Dundalk is the famous Proleek Dolmen, standing like a giant mushroom with three stalks, this massive structure is over 5000 years old, it's capstone 'the giants load' weighs over 46 tons, it is still a mystery how stone age people managed to haul the rock on top of the uprights. Nearby is a large grave made of rocks, said to be the tomb of a Scottish giant who came to Ireland to challenge the hero Fionn Mac Cumhail - and lost.
