A view from the gallery of this Full-court tomb across the penannular court to the narrow entrance.
This megalith, almost at sea-level immediately to the east of the main Sligo-Donegal road,
has been excavated and tidied up.


The lintel in the foreground, however, has been wrongly replaced - to judge from Wakeman's sketch below.


The NW corner of the court, showing two well-matched stones and an elegant filler-stone between.
Note the slab-like chocking stones beneath.
