Kilfeaghan, county Down

J 232 154 - Sheet 29

Nearest town: Kilkeel

This granite dolmen looks like a giant tortoise crawling up a beach (the long cairn), with a big capstone 2 metres long and 1 metre thick, and orthostats half buried in field stones and cairn material. An early account states that the cairn (now mostly disappeared) extended for over 7 metres in front of the N-facing chamber, so that there might once have been a façade similar to that of the court-tombs.
