These little wedge tombs are fascinating - I'm assuming they are only found in Ireland. tjj Posted by tjj

And this and a few others ain't so little, more like allee couvertes (if that's how you spell it).
Mose wedgies are early to mid bronze age.

Woman living in the cottage adjacent to the wedge tomb has, surprise, surprise, a degree in archaeology, advised me to visit the ruins of Corcomroe Abbey, a 13th-century Cistercian monastery a few miles away, amazing place.
