Tornant Upper

Passage Grave


Arch. Inventory of Co. Wicklow has it that this is a possible passage tomb. Also says that a decorated stone now in the National Museum of Ireland is reputed to have come from here.

The mound itself is completely overgrown with gorse. There are a few outlying stones to the north of the site that may be part of the kerb. On the south side there is one large boulder that could be some possible kerbing too.

I clomped through the gorse to a clear area on top of the mound but there are no signs of any opening into the tomb here.

The views across to Keadeen and Lugnaquilla are amazing.
