Possibly the oldest of the many megalithic monuments in Ballyvennaght townland, it’s also possibly the best preserved as it’s deeply embedded in the peat. It’s about 1.7 kilometres south-south-east of the double portal tomb, the exposure of which shows just what may lie beneath. Alas, a visit here, though easy, is probably for completists only as there’s not much to see, save for maybe a dozen stones peeping above the turf with some scatters of cairn rubble. ryaner Posted by ryaner
