Seen from the adjacent field to the west.


The sorry remains of what looks like a wedge tomb lie in a field south of Loughmacrory portal tomb.
A very low mound with some small stones poking out the ground is surrounded by a group of stones acting as a kerb. The largest stone is at the northwest end of the mound.
The site has become the dump for old tractor or truck parts and is also a convenient point for fastening a tie-rope for an electricity pole. We never saw such an outrage to a monument.
Not much remains to look at. It isn't marked on the OSNI Map.
