Travelling from Breastagh Ogham stone to Kilcummin Holy Well I noticed a megalithic tomb at Cashel marked on the OS map. I could not really confirm what type of megalithic structure it was, as most of it looked like field clearance, but figured it must have been a Court Tomb. A lot of the stones were shaped but they seemed too geometric and most of the stones appeared to be too uniform in thickness. I now know it is indeed a Court Tomb thanks to Fourwinds.
