BallymcDermott Court Tomb

One of the best court tombs in Ireland, cnstructed 5,500 years ago and still powerfully evocative.

Standing on the shoulder of Camlough Mountain near to Newry County Down, this tomb has an almost circular courtyard, outside a three chambered grave.

It is in great condition considering the ravages of time and a collision with a US army vehicle during WWII!

Said to be haunted, this is certainly an enchanted place.
