CASTLEHILL 2 WEDGE TOMB, COUNTY MAYO
This small Wedge Tomb, not marked on either the Historic or OS maps, is located
south west of the village of Ballycroy, 'Baile Chruaich' and 200m north of the other
wedge tomb is this town-land. The tomb, orientated E - W, consists of a 3m long gallery
with boulder shaped side-stones and one remaining roof-stone at the rear. The
roof-stone now lies on top of cairn material which has filled in the front of the gallery
but the main chamber remains relatively free of this. The entire structure is
surrounded by a low mound or cairn 0.5m in max; height and 5m in diameter.
