Artificial Mound


Small barow-like mound in a large pasture field outside the village of Dunderry. While my companion waited in the car, I hopped the field gate with enthusiasm, visions of Herity's outlier passage grave spurring me on.

Not visible from the road as it is obscured by the rise of the low hill on which it sits, what we have here is, imho, a small barrow. The boulders that Herity mentions could be the remains of a kerb, but I doubt it – they looked a lot like clearance to me, embedded in the turf now, but hey, who am I but a lowly megalithic adventurer.

Possibly worth a quick diversion on your way from Tara to Tlachtga, probably not.
