Parknasilloge

Chambered Grave

The megalithic tomb at Parknasilloge is as yet unclassified. It could be a Kist or maybe a disturbed Wedge tomb, as there are a number of small boulders lying around the chamber. Presently the tomb is being over run with brambles and a fallen tree lies next to the tomb. What once appeared as a quite picturesque image in old photographs is now a a dreadful mess and sadly a poor reflection on the age we now live in. This site badly needs some attention sooner rather than later.

Situated: From Enniskerry head west passing by Kilgarron cottages after 400 metres you will come to Kilgarron park on your left, a small housing estate with a few shops and a car park. From here cross the road heading towards a metal gate. The track takes you 250 metres up to the tomb a field on your right. Please ask for permission.
