Artist's Description

Poulnabrone portal tomb at the Burren in County Clare taken 28 March 2010
Poulnabrone Portal Tomb
Ballyvaughan Clare – Ireland West

The name Poulnabrone literally means ‘The hole of the sorrows’ and is is one of the most famous Irish dolmens. The thin capstone sits on two high portal stones to create a chamber in low cairn. This site dates back to about 2500 BC. Uncremated remains were found in the chamber as well and a number of grave goods were found in the tomb : a polished stone axe, two stone disc beads, a perforated bone pendant, part of a bone pin, two quartz crystals, flint and chert arrowheads and scrapers, and over 60 sherds of coarse pottery. In the same area there are about seventy other tombs.Taken from here
