|TINNAKILLA CIST COUNTY LIMERICK
|Its great to come across an intact cist like this now and again. It has a huge capstone held up off the ground
by four large rectangular boulders leaving a wide low chamber below. It is aligned on a SW-NE axis similar
to wedge tombs but has no outer-walling and no cairn material of any description survives. The capstone is
2.6m in length,2.2m in width and is .50m in depth. The chamber is very clean,save for a few small stones at
the back and is only .35m in height off the ground.
