Lisnadarragh Wedge Tomb, Monaghan, Ireland

Two weeks ago I paid a visit to Lisnadarragh Wedge Tomb in Co. Mongahan. The tomb is easily accessible, standing prominently in a field only 15 metres from a country road. The gallery of this roofless wedge tomb is 4.5 metres in length and 2 metres in width. It is aligned in a NE-SW direction with the largest stones at the south-westerly end roughly 2 metres in height and decreasing in height as it tapers to the rear. The tomb is flanked on both sides by outer walling and a displaced roof lintel stone lies to the south east. The tomb at Lisnadarragh is striking and tranquil, the gloomy weather on the day I visited only added to the peaceful hush that surrounds it.
