About Goward Dolmen

This fine portal tomb is surrounded by trees and is known locally as Pat Kearney’s Big Stone, from the former owner (traces of his house are still visible). The enormous granite capstone has slipped from its original position over a rectangular chamber which faces north-east. Stones beyond the entrance suggest a curving façade, allied to the court tomb tradition. There has been no archaeological excavation, but there is an early report of the finding of an urn and a flint arrowhead.
