About Clonlum South Cairn

A roughly circular cairn, partly encroached on by cultivation, encloses a single rectangular chamber built of large slabs with a huge, now broken, capstone. Excavation in 1934 showed that the site was already thoroughly disturbed and produced few finds. This is likely to be a Neolithic portal tomb, but because of the damage that has occurred here it is now difficult to classify.
