Lough Gur Wedge Tomb

Wedge Tomb


Taken from Sacred Ireland
"It is said that when archaeologists removed the bones from this site, every banshee in Ireland could be heard wailing."

An old woman is said to have lived in this wedge-tomb which is also referred to at the site. However this wedge tomb faces west and so the old woman could be the goddess in her hag form as the setting son. As far as I can recall Michael Dames refers to this idea in Mythic Ireland.
