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.

A detail of the NW corner of the court, showing two well-matched orthostats,
and an elegant filler-stone between. Note the chocking-stones beneath.
