Described in 'Mourne Country' by E.E.Evans as a court grave in a tangle of thorns and briars, consisting of three chambers. He first identified it (as a megalith) in 1947. Thankfully there were no briars when I visited (Oct 10). Knarly old hawthorn trees grow on the site, giving it a very peaceful air. The large boulders are still loosely arranged in the shape of 3 chambers, but I couldn't make out a forecourt. There is a pile of smaller boulders just downhill (maybe 25m) of the site.
