Description:   A fantastic wedge tomb with a mature Ash and Hawthorn growing on the top of the capstone. Hidden at the top of a valley on the north-western side of the Slieve Rushen mountain, in the middle of a Pine forest. Before the pine forest was planted the site would have had a fantastic view over north Cavan and south Fermanagh.

The tomb sits at the top north-east corner of a small field and looking at the bank and wall boundary to this field it is a really old field with the old dry stone wall completely covered in moss and the roots of trees growing along it. 

I really like this site as it was in a remote place and besides the local farmer I was probably the only person to have visited this site for years.
