One of NW Ireland’s finest example of a wedge tomb, from 2,500BC. It possibly has bronze aged rock art on the kerb stones. Built to face the setting sun rather than the rising sun. Why?
Leo Leydon will answer this question & discuss other interesting features during the afternoon visit to this Megalithic tomb, the last style of construction in Ireland, the wedge tomb. A description derived from the front end generally being wider and gradually lowering towards the back, built from the late Neolithic period to the Bronze Age, c.2700 BC-1700BC. Visit by the kind permission of the Feeney family, Castletown. Includes short walk across grazing ground. Suitable footwear advised.
