Approaching the tomb from the west.


This is the second tomb of this kind that we visited, the first one being the Knockmaridhe Tomb.
Unlike the other one, this tomb is in the same county where the townland of Linkardstown is, an area that is 6 km southwest from here.
The Baunogenasraid Linkardstown Tomb was discovered in the Autumn 1972 during the excavations of a tumulus. The first stage of the excavation led to the discovery of ten human burials, five cremations and five inhumations, along with a single flint flake and a food vessel that helped archaeologists dating the remains to the Early Bronze Age.
The second stage of the excavation discovered a cist placed at the centre of a large cairn. Inside the cist the disarticulated, unburnt remains of a male adult described "of exceptional size" were found along with a finely decorated bowl of Linkardstown type, that is a bowl with a T-rim around, and a small perforated object of lignite.
