TOORCLOGHER WEDGE TOMB
This great wedge tomb is hidden away three fields in from a local road in the town land
of Toorclogher,west of Loughrea. Only the small middle capstone remains in place but
the two door slabs and much of the double walling remain. The chamber would have
been over 4m long and 1.5m wide but with the heavy growth of brambles its hard to
measure. It is located on a small,maybe man-made mound in a grassy field with great
views all around. Close by in a field boundary,are some huge boulders that maybe from
the tomb and although the field is well farmed,most,if not all of the cairn material still
surrounds the tomb. The landowner is very helpful, so please ask permission.
