Kilmogue Portal Tomb
This superb tomb is also known as Leac an Scail which means ‘stone of the warrior’.
This portal tomb has been constructed using a large capstone resting on two large portal-stones and a pillow stone resting on a back stone.
The portal stones are around 14 ft high and the capstone reaches approx 18 ft. Its lower end rests on a smaller, horizontal stone which partly covers the chamber.
This is one of the largest tombs in Ireland and this site is an absolute must see,
another name this magic tomb may also be known by is Harristown Dolmen.
