Breastagh

Wedge Tomb

About 200 metres north of the ogham stone at Breastagh are the remnants of quite a large wedge tomb. Very little remains of this tomb, but to me the boulders used are similar to the nearby wedge tomb at Rathfranpark, although a lot smaller. On a slightly more elevated site than the ogham stone, this tomb is still well worth visiting as there are some gorgeous views of the local scenery from this megalithic monument.

Situated: From Ballina go North through Killala, take a right after you cross Palmerstown bridge then drive North along this road passing the Rathfranpark wedge tomb, the Ogham stone can be seen in the field on your left just after the next crossroads.
