At Kilclooney near Ardara in Donegal there are three portal tombs and the remains of a court tomb. The famous Dolmen has a capstone 6 metres long. Close to this dolmen is a much smaller collapsed portal tomb.
How many dolmens once existed? Is it a miracle that any have survived? Perhaps we underestimate conservation motives of the hundreds of generations of our ancestors who saved these monuments from destruction? Or perhaps we overestimate them?
