Harristown, county Waterford
S 677 040 - Sheet 76
On top of a low hill, this low tomb commands a fine view
and is the most impressive of a group of County Waterford passage-tombs which
resemble those of the Scilly Isles off Cornwall in that the chamber and the
passage are one.
The wedge-shaped passage/chamber and the partial doubling of the side walls in this example show some influence from wedge-tombs.
Only two roofstones survive. The sepulchre is surrounded by remains of its cairn, and a kerb of orthostats broken at the entrance to the passage/chamber in which there is a low sill-stone.
