Passage Tomb

It was quite late when we arrived at this passage tomb as a result I have brightened these images considerably. The long grass didn't help either, but the low light and grass are little compared to the real threat to this monument. Due to coastal erosion the northern half of this undifferentiated passage tomb has disappeared into the sea. The scant remains of the tomb appear to be a narrow passage about four metres long. Close by are the remains of a wedge tomb, but due to the long grass and the fading light I was unable to locate this tomb. A winter visit may be best.

Situated: From Bundoran take the R267 South. After 1 kilometre take a right turn at the V in the road. There is a new housing estate built here. Drive to the end of these and take another right turn. Go through the estate until you reach a small car-park by the coast. You should see the tomb from here.
