Stones

Rathfranpark Wedge Tomb has a gallery over 10 feet long with side walls composed of huge boulders that are between 4-1/2 and 6-1/2 feet tall.

An interesting fact noted by one visitor: "We were horrified to discover that the mound of large stones covering the east end of the gallery was not debris from the wedge tomb, but was in fact the remains of a destroyed stone circle. A stone circle once stood close to the tomb until about 1951...over the rest of the fifties the circle stones were uprooted and dumped onto the wedge tomb until all trace of the circle was removed."
