Carrigdangan Mass Rock

 

This site is recommended by archaeologist Tony Miller. It is located on Coillte land in Johnstown which is heavily overgrown..

 

The Mass Rock consists of a natural, almost vertical slab of rock which is splitting away from a rib of bedrock and measures approximately 1.8m high. There are two circular depressions clearly cut into the slab which appear relatively recent in due to a lack of obvious weathering.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The second site is reputed to have been a burial ground, immediately south of the first site. It is a fairly level area now very overgrown with furze bushes preventing any access at all.

 

This site is also extremely overgrown.
