County Sligo, Ireland
|Elevation||262 m (860 ft)|
|Built||c. 4000–2500 BC|
|Official name: Carrowreagh Court Tomb|
Carrowreagh Court Tomb was constructed in the Neolithic, c. 4000–2500 BC. A cist was found nearby, 30 m (33 yd) to the SW.
The court was located in the northwest. The gallery is kite-shaped with an entrance 2 m (6½ ft) wide. This widens to over 3 m (10 ft) at the jambs. There may have been three or four terminal chambers, an unusually high number – it is hard to be exact as the stones are in disarray.
