Heapstown Cairn

This is the largest cairn in Ireland outside the Boyne Valley. It is 60m in diameter, with a kerb of often very large limestone slabs enclosing the base. Heapstown has not been excavated but it is thought most likely to be a passage tomb, an extension of the Carrowkeel megalithic complex.
