C8401 : Tirnony Dolmen

taken 14 years ago, near to Maghera, Northern Ireland

Tirnony Dolmen
Tirnony Dolmen
It used to be in the field behind the hedge, but the latter was diverted to show it off more clearly from the roadside.

The capstone is supported by three of six upright stones, two of which form the portal. It is believed to be 4000-6000 year old megalithic burial tomb. One of the small non supporting stone was badly damaged when the capstone on the dolmen has fell off at the end of April in 2010
