KILNAVERT WEDGE TOMB, COUNTY CAVAN
Sited on a slight rise in undulating land. This monument, surrounded by a tree-ring,
consists of a ruined gallery flanked by outer-walling around which there are traces of a
mound measuring 11m by 10m. A gallery, now 3.5m long, narrows from 1.5m wide at
SW to 1.35m at NE. A single slab covers all but its NE end. About 2m W of its more
northerly side there is a single facade-stone. Just beyond the S side of the gallery there
are three outer wall stones and another 2.5m W of these. There are two outer wall
stones, 5m apart, at N. (de Valera and Ó Nualláin 1972, 116, No.15)
