BALLYNAGALLAGH MEGALITHIC TOMB,COUNTY LIMERICK.
This Megalithic Tomb, marked on the OS map as 'Leaba na Muice' meaning  'The
Pig's Bed', is located close to the south shore of Lough Gur, 'Loch Goir', on a slight
northerly slope, east of the town of Holycross, 'Baile na gCailleach' and 750m west of
the wedge tomb at Lough Gur, in an area known as 'The Red Bog'. The tomb, aligned
NE - SW, consists of one upright side-stone at NW, a back-stone at SW and a prostrate
side-stone at SE. The small roof-stone has collapsed SE and now lies on top of the
fallen SE side-stone. The small chamber, 1.5m x 1m, contains small stones that maybe
cairn material but no other evidence of cairn or mound survives.
