Poulnabrone Dolmen, The Burren, Co. Clare.
Seen across the almost lunar landscape of the bare, weathered limestone of the Burren which forms strange shapes and hollows but also hosts a fantastic range of flora and fauna. A unique area of Ireland and the perfect setting for one of Irelands best known portal tombs.
The tomb is box shaped with a steeply angled slab like capstone which is trapezodial in shape. Although the rear of the chamber has collapsed and a possible second capstone lies to the rear of the tomb, the structure is still very dramatic. The tomb was excavated in 1986 and the remains of 22 individuals were found in a disarticulated sate, bones pushed into the natural grykes of the burren bedrock.
