Named as a wedge tomb on, but not mentioned in the Survey of the Megalithic Tombs of Ireland. This is a sad wreck of a place, but maybe that's because I visited on a wind and rainswept November day.
The round capstone sits above a tiny gallery/chamber, maybe a metre square. There is lots of cairn material about this chamber and the remains of a mound are clearly visible.
