Harristown Dolmen or Kilmogue Portal Tomb is one of the tallest and most spectacular examples of a Portal Dolmen in Ireland.
Known as ‘Leac An Scail’ – stone of the warrior hero, the portal tomb has been constructed using a large capstone on two portal stones and a pillow stone. The portal stones are approximately 3.7 m high and the capstone reaches up well 4 m. The entrance faces North East towards the Summer Solstice sunrise.
It was constructed between 3000 BC to 4000 BC. The Portal Tombs were built long before Celtic Culture reached Ireland.
