Wedge Tomb

Laughanstown (Wedge Tomb) by ryaner The pond in the north-eastern sector of the enclosed wedge tomb. I couldn't see any source for this so it may be fed from underground. In an article in Archaeology Ireland from 2001, while the site was being excavated, the author mentions "the monument appears to be related to the ring cairn/pond barrow class" and "The site was evidently not intended solely for the deposition of human remains, and seems rather to have formed an enclosure in which rituals took place."
