Megalith hunting

I took a wrong turn but found this cool castle on the road, apparently its a 13th-15th century Butler castle (on a site note, later on it was owned by a family named Sherlock!)

Cnoc an Challaigh/Gaulstown Portal tomb- a lovely secluded but easily accessible tomb, huge too, capstone was over 4m in length!

As all portal tombs, it has a lovely profile

Ballymoat Gallán, an impressive standing stone- 3.7m in height! 

Matthewstown Passage tomb- a moundless passage tomb with lovely views west

I took sometime off today and headed to south waterford, near Tramore and went looking for some pretty famous tombs and megaliths that I hadnt got to yet. It nice, cold as hell, but clear and sun was welcome. All sites were fairly recluse and so I was able to get long periods of quiet time with them to soak up the vibes
