Carrowkeel Passage Tomb Site 5 Photo Gallery

The most impressive of the Carrowkeel passage tombs and the least visited. This passage structure is massive and incorporates a dozen or more chambers. The whole entrance way has colapsed as have the back chambers. This passage structure seem to be the oldest of the tomb because of it's state of decay. It therefore say that the ancient irish had access to high level of technology that seem to run out or get used up as the structure that came after this one seem to be on a smaller scale
