A wonderful wedge tomb located on the south-west slope of a hill with an alignment
normal for wedge tombs of NE-SW. The chamber is 5m in length and 1.5m at the front
tapering to 0.50m at the back,with a height at the entrance of 0.60m. Two capstones
cover the tomb,a small one at the front which rests on top of the much larger one at
the back which extends over the end of the tomb much like the wedge tombs located
further south like
Inchincurka and Keamcorravooly. Sadly the tomb gets covered in
thorn bushes later in the year but it has easy access and well worth the visit.
