Name:  Aghavas Megalithic Tomb

Location:  Aghavas, Cloone, Co Leitrim.

Access: From Cloone take the Carrigallen road.  Follow the road for 5 km and take the Aghavas Turnoff on the south side of  the main road. Follow the Aghavas road for 1 km and pull over. There will be a lane running down to a house and the access to the site is a little way down this lane, on the right side will be a gate and the site is on the far side of the field it enters onto.

Description: As you can see from the picture above the undergrowth has completely reclaimed this site. It was difficult to get any measurements or to see how many stones were involved in this site.

There is a debate among the staff as to whether we should uncover these sites or leave them to Nature. What do you think e-mail us if you like.
