Carrownagh Court Tomb

Map Reference: G732285 (1732, 3285)

This megalithic tomb has a gallery divided into possibly three sections. There is a backstone at the west end and good jambstones indicate that there are two distinct chambers. There may be a third chamber at the east end but this area contains some cairn material, possibly not all original, and a large stone which may be a displaced lintel. This may be the area of the court. One of the embedded stones appears to be out of line with the gallery and suggests that the structure widens at this point, indicating a court.
