Wedge Tomb

Loughmacrory townland has a number of megalithic remains, amongst them is the picturesque wedge tomb shown above. The tomb has five roofstones with a portico, the portico has a dividing-stone shown in the image below, this seems to be a feature of wedge tombs in this area, see Dunnamore. Another feature of this megalithic monument is double walling running along both sides. The best time to see this tomb is probably in the Autumn, so I will visit again later in the year, there are so many other megaliths to visit in this locality.

Situated: From Cookstown, County Tyrone head west along the A505 towards Omagh, after 18 kilometres you will pass Creggan visitor centre, then take the next left 2 kilometres approx, then tomb is in a field to your left just before the next right turn.
