Wedge Tomb (Destroyed)


Pics of Lost Tomb

A number of interesting pics of what I believe to me the tomb I couldnt find in the pine plantation.
It may be possible to figure out its location if it still exists from them.

"There are a number of archaeological features in the forest and a megalithic tomb is located in Mountrussel. There are also a number of cairns"

From Coillte's website, I emailed them and asked for GPS coordinates, will let you know as soon as I have a reply, hopefully a positive one[showUid]=LK07&cHash=9aee75ba11

I also have the Grid coordinates 161807, 118608 which is displayed when you move the cursor over the location but have no idea how to convert these to anything useful
