The worst of the three portal tombs in Bellyvennaght townland, we reached here from the double portal that's about 850 metres to the south-west. As can be seen from the photos, the journey across the difficult, boggy terrain was barely worth it... and yet, what else would I be doing? It's probably never going to be on many peoples' agenda, and is therefore under possible threat through neglect and indifference, so in the end, on reflection, I'm glad we made the effort. ryaner Posted by ryaner
