One hundred metres south-west of the court tomb lie the sad remains of this wedge tomb. Ruined and all as it is I loved it here, probably because, even though it’s so close to the road, it remains little known and most likely unvisited. In its original state it would have been a small example of its type, no Labbacallee this, aligned roughly west/east with the entrance at the west. There’s very little view in that direction, the forested terrain rising up to a low shelf and blocking the sightline. North-east is Cushleake Mountain North and north of that is Carnanmore, the late evening sea mist doing a revelatory dance around its summit. ryaner Posted by ryaner
