Tomn 52, Passage Tomb, Carrowmore, Co. Sligo.

Location – In the main area behind the visitors centre.

Description and History – Tomb 52 is one of a cluster of some much destroyed tombs near Listoghil. This tomb is another dolmen like tomb but it is missing its boulder circle. The tomb is quite small and it about 1.3m high and 1.6m wide on each side. The capstone rests on 4 orthostats and two other stones are nearby. Over 600 fragments of bone were found here along with some shells. This is a nice little tomb, although largely destroyed.

Difficulty – Very easy.
