Ballyganner South Wedge Tomb

Ballyganner South Wedge Tomb

West Ireland | County Clare

Ballyganner South Wedge Tomb, located about 4 km east from Kilfenora in County Clare has the largest chamber of all the wedge tombs of Burrren.The monument decreases regularly in height and width from west to east and its sides are each made of one huge slab. Its chamber is 4.20m long, 2.95m wide and 1.60m high at the west, and 2m wide and 1m high at the east. Its eastern end is completly closed by single stone slab, while the western end (which unfortunately, now is incorporated into a stone fence) has gap between the closing slab and side slab. The chamber was probably covered by one great slab, which could have dimentions 6.1m by 3.35m. Two of remaining pieces of roof stone are held up by a steel beam, and the rest are scattered around and inside. The exact date of its construction is unknown but generally the wedge tombs date c.2500 - 2000BC.
