Carrowkeel - Cairns C and D

Passage Grave


These two cairns lie 50m apart in the hills to the N of the access road to the Carrowkeel cemetery about 0.6 km W of cairn G.

Both are ruined. The 1911 excavations suggest that C had the cruciform chamber seen at other Carrowkeel sites and D had traces of a passage leading to a cist within the cairn.
