Gowlane North, county Cork

W 485 855 - Sheet 80

Nearest village: Donoughmore

This was a perfect little circle, 7 metres in diameter.
It comprised eight stones (two fallen) averaging one metre in height, two of which, only 90 cm apart,
formed an entrance to the N with another pair set radially outside the circle, slightly farther apart.
This entrance passage, 2.1 metres long, faced a large axial stone:
a rectangular slab 150 by 90 cm on the opposite side of the circle.

The same circle nearly 30 years later, photographed by Ken Williams and Ian Thompson.
What a mess! What a scandal!
