Cloghanmore Court Tomb, Malin More

Map reference: G518826 (1518, 3826)

This large full-court tomb is set in a coffin-shaped cairn about 40m long. At the W end of the court, which is about 14m long by 11m wide, are two parallel galleries each divided into two chambers by jamb stones.

The S gallery has a very fine lintel at the entrance and some large corbels in the roof. Each gallery is about 5m long. At the E end of the court is an entrance passage about 3m long and 2m wide.

Single subsidiary chambers open into the court on either side of the entrance passage. Some of the stones in the court are decorated with curvilinear ornament similar to that of passage tombs. This is very faint and difficult to find.
