This tomb is only a few miles from Glanworth and is probably worth a look if you are visiting Labbacallee. In the town of Glanworth turn down towards the river and cross a really narrow bridge with a traffic light on it. After about 2 miles you will come to Manning cross. The tomb is on the right hand side about 300 before the cross in on a hill that is very overgrown.
The tomb itself is aligned west-east. There is a rath or a mound to the north of it and the OS map shows a number of circles around this suggesting ring-forts (i think). Its interesting that the inhabitants would have built around this tomb.

This big flat topped mound is massive. Im not sure what it is, possibly a raised rath or an artifical mound. Its not a motte.
It is about 5m tall, flat-topped the diameter could be anything up to 20-30m.
There is a low bank around the outside of the mound.
