Portal Tomb


Visited 25.5.11
Well, here we are, my last site to visit on a fantastic weeks holiday in Ireland.
I started with a cracker and it is only right that I finish with a cracker.
And that is exactly what this site is.
The tomb is once more surrounded by green grass and is easily visible from the road.
It is as perfect a little dolmen as you could wish to find. Despite the nearby road the site felt very calm and standing on top of the cap stone you can see a fair distance.
I liked this place a lot – as I have liked nearly every site I have visited this week.
I sat inside the chamber for a short while and contemplated the long journey home.
I was hoping to see a few sites this week but have been very fortunate to see so many. I far exceeded my expectations and I have Karen and the children to thank for their patience.
We hope to return in two years and spend a week along the west coast.
I imagine I will find something of interest to visit……………………….
