"Tobernahaltora" is a well-preserved sepulchre is in a very beautiful situation by the roadside.
A single large roofstone covers most of the main chamber of the gallery.

A view from the front, showing the large door-like septal slab dividing the main chamber
from the antechamber in the foreground, and the chocking-stones on the back-stone supporting the roof.


A romantic view of 'The Altar Well'.

Unfortunately, since the photographs above were taken in the nineteen-seventies,
a bungaloid dwelling has been built right beside the tomb.

Talk about blasphemy and desecration!
