A solitary slab about 150 metres south-east below the wedge tomb. Is this the only surviving stone of a second wedge tomb? The Arch. Survey of Co. Donegal says that: "The 2nd and 3rd editions of the OS maps show two stones here but there is no visible trace of the second stone." So maybe... but if so, why would the destroyers leave just one (or two) stone(s) standing? ryaner Posted by ryaner
