RAVENSDALE PARK PASSAGE TOMB
RAVENSDALE PARK PASSAGE TOMB, COUNTY LOUTH
This passage tomb, marked on the OSI map as ‘Megalithic Tomb’ & on the Historic
map as ‘Clermont Carn’, is located on top of the 508m high Black Mountain, close to
the ‘Tain Way’, (Sli na Tana). This circular hilltop cairn, 21m in diameter and over 4m
in height, contains the remains of a megalithic structure 3.5m in length, in the SW
quadrant. It is open to the SW and narrows from 1m in width to 0.5m at the rear. Three
lintels are in position; the rear 0.7m of the structure is corbelled. The remains would
seem to be those of a passage-tomb of uncertain design. Near the centre of the cairn
are the remains of a dry-stone-walled circular structure, 3.3m in diameter, with an
entrance passage opening to the SE, which may have been built by Lord Clermont.
