BALLYFROOTA MEGALITHIC TOMB,COUNTY LIMERICK.
This Megalithic Tomb, marked on the OS map as 'Cromlech', is located at the bottom
of the NE slope of Slievereagh and west of the Morning Star River, 'An Chamhaoir',
NW of the town of Ballylanders, 'Baile an Londraigh', at the side of a small road. The
tomb, aligned N - S and which was altered in the 19TH century and used as a 'Mass
Rock', consists of one side stone on the west side which supports a single, large
roof-stone, now supported by a dry-stone wall on the east side and is possibly made up
of stones from the original structure. A 2ND roof-stone to the east and also supported
by the dry-stone wall, is a later addition and may have been the original west side-stone
and is supported on the east side by a modern side-stone.
