|GARRAN PORTAL TOMB
|This portal tomb is located behind a modern house in a small wooded copse and is
located on a broad E-W spur and incorporated in a kink of a NW-SE field bank on the
SW side. A chamber (L 2m; Wth 1m), opening to the NNW, is represented by two portal
stones, two side stones on either side, and a back stone. The roof stone is displaced and
leaning against one of the E side-stones. It is listed as a portal tomb (Ó Nualláin 1983,
100), and is a nearly perfect example of one.
The above description is derived from the published 'Archaeological Inventory of
County Monaghan' (Dublin: Stationery Office, 1986).
