"The Carn of the Leinster Youths lies alongside the Sheskin of Temur to the north."

"To the north of the Sheskin, or Moor, of Tara, were situated two cairns, or monumental heaps of stones, one called the Cairn of the Leinster Youths, and the other the Cairn of the Hy-Niall Youths. These cairns were situated north and south of each other, and between them lay the Deisiol Temrach, which is spoken of in the verse as a lucky spot before going to heaven, where people turned to the right, or sun-ways. This notice has evidently a reference to the ancient pagan superstition of the Irish, not yet obsolete, that making a circle sun ways was productive of prosperity, or good fortune. This custom is still observed in the Roman Catholic pilgrimages, burials, &c." (p. 221)
