Tawnatruffaun, county Sligo

G 400 282 - Sheet 24

Nearest village: Dromore West


The Giant's Griddle
has a fine slab-like capstone 2.8 metres long,
tilted appropriately and resting on 2 well-matched portal-stones about 1.5 metres high
(between which is a low 'half-door' stone) and only just resting on the backstone.
One of the sidestones has disappeared - allowing this view into the chamber.

This photo was taken in 1975, before soulless conifer plantation.
