Proleek, county Louth:
"The Giant's Load"

The tomb-skeleton - and the pebbles thrown on top - in silhouette.

A nineteenth-century engraving showing the tomb before the concrete buttress was built..

A drawing by Grose (in his Antiquities of England and Wales) made even earlier.

And three photographs taken in 2005 by Ken Williams.
