Sess Kilgreen, county Tyrone

H 603 583 - Sheet 19

This stone, not far away from the small tomb, is thought by some to be a roofstone.
It is used by cattle as a rubbing-post.
This photgraph was taken in 1973, but little can now be seen of this rich decoration,
because the Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland outrageously refused to put
either the stone or the tomb under protection.

The pictures below, taken by Ian Thompson in November 2004, show how much this stone has been eroded in 30 years.

But this picture, taken with oblique flash in 2006 by Ken Williams, shows rather more detail.
