Kilmakee, county Antrim

Nearest town: Templepatrick

A 'stone circle' which is almost certainly the kerb of a now-depleted cairn which may have contained a tomb.
The ring of some 45 basalt boulders (some smoothed by water-rolling) has been planted with trees,
so that gnarled roots and trunks are growing around the stones and occupying the spaces between,
except on the N side where the kerb and cairn have been removed.

Compare the circle at Broadleas, county Wicklow.

A detail of some of the 45 basalt boulders now picturesquely in the clutches of beech-trees.
