Both portal tombs, with the bigger one in the foreground.


Along the Ballyrenan Road there are these two beautiful portal tombs. One is in better conditions than the other one and the place is quiet indeed.
The lady who directed us here complained that the grass was too high and all the place was badly mantained, but frankly I liked the way it was the day we were here, it looked wild and untouched.
The two tombs are both facing east and they are about 7 metres apart.
The bigger one is 2.20 metres tall, 1.50 metres wide and about 4 metres long.
The smaller one is about 1.70 metres tall, the width is 1 metre at the entrance and about 1.50 metres at the rear and it's 2.50 metres long.
