Photographer's Note

Another shot of this Dolmen (previous post) from a different point of view and in color.

Situated in Ballykeel, Co Armagh is this wonderful example of a tripod dolmen. This capstone is the only one in Northern Ireland to be re-erected, both it and the door-slab were replaced during excavations in 1965. The capstone which is some 3 metres long has a notable notch in it, a feature of many other megaliths in Northern Ireland.The two large portal stones stand at around 2 metres high.

Thanks for your comments,

Damien.
