Strandhill
Sligo
Republic of Ireland

Found near Sligo Town, just west of Knocknarea, Ballysadare Bay is home to the fascinating remains of prehistoric kitchen middens, or refuse heaps, where shells were deposited.

The marine life found around the Cuil Irra Peninsula served as an important source of food for the Mesolithic man and subsequent settlers. The area's remains are extensive, with some of the middens stretching 100m long.
