BALLAGHANEA PORTAL TOMB
Hosting by Aabaco Web Hosting
Sadly very little remains of this once fine portal tomb. Situated in rolling land 300m NE
of Lough Ramor. In the mid-1960s, when the published plan was made (de Valera and
Ó Nualláin 1972), this tomb, incorporated in a field fence, was quite ruined. It
consisted of the remains of a gallery, 2.2m long, aligned SSE-NNW. A stone 1.3m high,
seemed to mark the N end of the gallery. Three orthostats formed its more easterly side,
the tallest 0.8m high. Opposite these a displaced slab protruded from the fence. The
remains appeared to be those of a portal tomb. Some fifteen years ago the tomb was
considerably damaged, however some structure still remains. (de Valera and Ó
Nualláin 1972, 135-6, No. 39)

County Cavan' (Dublin: Stationery Office, 1995).
