Ballynageeragh Dolmen, Dunhill, County Waterford.
This is a late neolithic portal tomb. It dates from 2500 to 2000 BC. It looks rather small, due to the fact it is standing in a huge field with very little near it for scale but as you get closer it begins to look quite dramatic.
Unfortunately the tomb has been badly reconstructed. It looks as if whoever restored it lost the instructions. There is something wrong with the entrance, either the two portal stones or one portal stone and a doorstone are missing. The massive capstone which measures 13' x 9', rests on a wall constructed in the 1940's from building blocks.
Worth a look, even if just to see how not to restore an ancient monument.
Dunhill village is about 12km southwest of Waterford City and 8km west of Tramore town. Once in Dunhill, turn right up the hill behind Harney's Pub. Once at the school turn left. After about 600 metres take the lane to the right. About 500 metres further along, in a field to your right you will see the dolmen.
The cache is a small round camouflaged tupperware box. BYOP.
