Ballyganner South, county Clare.

A fine but damaged tomb which has the largest chamber in the Burren,
formed by 2 great sidestones over 5 metres long and a neatly-fitting backstone.
The top of the S sidestone juts forward like a prow.
Over the W end of the tomb are two broken slabs which, together with fragments inside and outside the chamber,
formed the huge roof of the tomb - before a large bonfire was lit on the intact roofstone to celebrate a Hurling victory in 1955.
