Point of Interest Details

As we continue to Stop 2 (b) along the boardwalk we arrive at the first ancient tomb at Blane-more. This is the remains of a circa. 5500 year old ruined Court-tomb, of which the Killala bay region has the highest concentration of such megalithic tombs anywhere. The tomb consists of an 'arc' shaped open entrance to an originally earth-stone covered chamber(s). Another field wall is seen nearby on the other side of the boardwalk. The granite boulders were preferred by the Neolithic builders, but are also mixed with some conspicuous red sandstone rocks..
