ANNAGHMORE PORTAL TOMB, COUNTY LEITRIM
This Portal Tomb, marked on the OS map as 'Cromlech', is located on a gentle west facing slope in an undulating
landscape. The rectangular chamber is 2.5m ENE-WSW, 1.2m NNW-SSE and 1.55m in height, consisting of two
portal-stones at the east, two side-stones and a back-stone. The capstone measures 2.2m in length, 2.1m in width
and 0.5m in depth. There are traces of a cairn 1m in height, surrounding it at the south end. It was originally
incorporated into the junction of two field banks but they have been cleared and it is now accessible directly from
the road at the south.
