|This wonderfully small megalithic complex, not marked on any edition of the OS maps,
dating to the middle Bronze Age (1,500 BC), is located in a flat area of rough pasture
about 50m west of the Cooleenlemane river, on the extreme southern slopes of
Coomhola Mountain, east of the town of Glengarriff (Gleann Garbh) and north of the
N71. The site consists of a five-stone circle (CO105-004004), three boulder burials
(CO105-004001-003) aligned almost N-S and a pair of standing stones
(CO105-004005). The Cooleenlemane river encloses the site from the NW to the SW
providing the site with a natural semi-circle enclosure.
