Near Mullaghmore, Co. Sligo. The view is through the entrance to the open court. The dolmen-like object in the distance is the entrance to the burial chamber. The smaller construction in the court is an iron smelter, probably built in the Christian period. The construction of this tomb dates to around 2,500 b.c. In addition to this tomb, Harbison lists a number of the more notable examples: Annaghmore, Co. Armagh; Cohaw, Co. Cavan; Ballywholan, Co. Tyrone; Aghanaglack, Co. Fermanagh; Magheraghanrush, Co. Sligo; and Glencolumbikille, Co. Donegal.
