Carrowmore, county Sligo

A cairn-kerb surrounds a now-roofless Boulder-tomb
against the pervading backdrop of Knocknarea and Maeve's Cairn.

Two more views of Knocknarea and Misgán Méadbha.

Sitting ever so sadly on a roundabout in a Sligo housing-estate known as Garavogue Villas is this boulder-kerb
some 12 metres in diameter. The most recent inhabitants of the area felt compelled
to Christianise it (in 1950) - and the result is grotesque .
Knocknarea is behind.
