This was a nice surprise, the tomb gets little attention due to the spectacular Aughnacliffe Dolmen in the village but its very nice indeed. Even the locals downplayed it, saying it was better to see the other one instead.

The field it is in is down a very narrow boreen and there is very little room to park, best bet is to go past the field and park outside the next house on the right, its hard to tell whether someone still lives there. Its easy to miss as you drive past because in the field opposite there seems to be alot of stones sticking out of the ground that look like the ruins of something or other.

The tomb is larger than I had expected, its at a funny angle but this isn't as noticeable now that the field is so overgrown and it blends in perfectly in the warm evening sun. It clouded over as I was here but for the ten minutes the sun was out it was very nice indeed.
