This fine small Portal Tomb, not marked on either the OSI or Historic maps, is
situated in rolling pasture 400m south of the River Erne, 'An Eirne', west of Corglass
Lough, south of Ardkill More and 'Slieve Glah' and east of the R154 and NW of
Kilnaleck, 'Cill na Leice'. This east facing chamber is 2.2m in overall length, 1.4m in
width and narrows towards the back. The entrance is formed by two, well matched
portal stones 0.4m apart and about 1.6m in height. The sides are formed by single
stones which overlap the portal stones. Both side-stones are about 1.2m in height and
the inward leaning back-stone is 0.7m in height. The broken capstone is supported by
the portal stones and the back-stone. There are some traces of a cairn around the west
end of the chamber.
