Ballykeel, county Armagh

H 995 213 - Sheet 28

Nearest village: Camlough

A fine "tripod-dolmen" stands at one end of the remnants of a long cairn, 7.2 km SW of Camlough,
with a ¾ door-slab between the portal stones, which are about 2 metres high.
The slab-capstone (the only one actually to have been replaced on a portal-tomb) is nearly 3 metres long.
At the other end of the cairn was a box-like kist-tomb.
Parallel with the stone-kerbed long sides of the cairn are 2 straight lines of stones, set in the cairn.
