DRUMHAWNAGH PORTAL TOMB, COUNTY CAVAN
This portal tomb, marked on both the OSI & Historic maps as ‘Druid’s Altar’, is
situated close to the roadside in the front garden of a modern house, east of the
headwaters of the River Erne, ‘An Eirne’. This well-preserved polygonal chamber is
formed by two portal-stones, two side-stones and a back-stone, covered by a single roof-
stone. It is 2.3m in length and 2m in width inside the portal-stones, narrowing to 1.1m
at the back-stone. The portal stones, at the NNW, stand 0.75m apart and both are 1.55m
