Very easy to access and in a lovely setting near Lough Gur.
We parked in the lay by and I walked up the grass slope to the tomb. Dafydd wanted to come but had decided to take his shoes and socks off so I had to carry him across the wet grass.
There are four capstones over the tomb and an information board is near by.
Not as big or bold as other sites I have visited today but still well worth the little effort it takes to visit.
This would be a great site for a picnic on a nice summer's day (not today!)
The Lough Gur wedge tomb lies to the SSE of the great circle. The site is easy to find (it's right by the roadside), and is clearly signed from the circle. As with the other sites in this area, this one has a truly magickal feel to it.
Taken from Sacred Ireland
"It is said that when archaeologists removed the bones from this site, every banshee in Ireland could be heard wailing."
An old woman is said to have lived in this wedge-tomb which is also referred to at the site. However this wedge tomb faces west and so the old woman could be the goddess in her hag form as the setting son. As far as I can recall Michael Dames refers to this idea in Mythic Ireland.
