Round Barrow(s)


Massive barrow in Coolnahy – I'd have liked to have spent more time here but I had another destination in mind and the bullocks in the distance had spotted me and were making moves my way.

I'm guessing about 30 metres diameter, internal fosse a metre and a half deep in places, mound still much in evidence and not ploughed out or eroded. It sits atop an enhanced natural platform and is a brilliant example of its kind, many of which litter (literally) the Westmeath landscape around here.
