Wedge Tomb

These rather impressive remains of a wedge-tomb can be clearly seen from the road. Although this tomb is roofless it is still worth visiting, one of the roof-stones can be seen to the left of the middle picture. The Orthostats at the front of the tomb are quite large and decrease in height from the front to the back of the tomb. The front of the tomb faces in a south-westerly direction.

Situated: About 2 kilometres North of Shercock. Take the R162 North from Shercock, after 1 kilometre turn left onto the R161 north for Castleblaney at the next crossroads turn right the tomb is in a field to the right of the road about 1K from the crossroads.
