Description: Situated on the saddle between Sorrel Hill and Lugnagun, with extensive views to the S over the now flooded King's River valley. Small cairn (diam. c. 10m; H 0.4-0.6m) with traces of an internal structure, possibly a passage feature, at the SE side.

The above description is derived from the published 'Archaeological Inventory of County Wicklow' (Dublin: Stationery Office, 1997). In certain instances the entries have been revised and updated in the light of recent research.
