This looks remote and isolated, I've noticed there doesn't seem to be any fieldnotes. I do miss reading about the Irish sites as by and large many of them appear to be rarely visited. tjj Posted by tjj

I rarely comment about the images I post, largely because I am not qualified to do so, what can I say about this site, its not too far from Castletownbere in the Bere Peninsula, up a pathway off the main road, close to a large nearby standing stone with easy access, a signpost on the main road probably indicating the two sites has vanished from the pole, possible by the farmer who owns the land to keep numbers visiting the site low, I have noticed a lot of this type of thing around the country

Thanks Charles, I think the fact that you have been there makes you qualified to write about it. It reminds me a lot of King's Quoit on the south west Pembrokeshire coast ... Ireland has some beautiful dolmens. tjj Posted by tjj

Charles, must say I agree with TJJ here.... keep on seeing your images of exceptional sites we'd die to have over the water. I've done a few tours of Ireland, but obviously nowhere near enough. Your perogative, of course, but by the sounds of it you've an audience of at least two if you ever feel like relating some thoughts on these wonderful places. Comments re the local farmer etc would be a great help to us outsiders........ GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN
