Situated in a field close to Camlough are the remains of a portal tomb adjoining the ruins of a cashel. The image on the left shows a large portal stone with a huge door stone standing to the right of it and the stump of the other broken portal stone to the right of that. There is no sign of a chamber, but there are some large stones built into the cashel which may have formed the original chamber.
|As you can see from the image shown right, the cashel lies in ruin and is overgrown with trees and brambles. The walls of the cashel stand at around 1 metre tall. The diameter of the cashel is approximately 30 metres. If you do visit this tomb please ask for permission first.||
Situated: From Newry take the A25 west to Camlough the take the B30 South for Castleblaney, then turn left following the lough, the tomb is in a field just behind the old farmhouse immediately after the first left, go up the track to the house and beyond the gate in front of you.
