The remains of this passage tomb are located in the dip between ridges NW of
Loughinisland at the Bucks Head crossroad. The tomb is a regular chamber of  three
sides with a capstone 0.68m thick x 2.4m x 2.13m. It is 0.6m above the ground,which
according to A.S.C.D. (1966) is very low for a chamber of a passage grave. However, a
description of the site in 1772 reports that the capstone was supported by side stones to
a height of 3ft 6ins. It was later slightly displaced.
