The Centre-court tomb viewed from one of the galleries in 1972, and looking across a displaced lintel-stone,
across the unroofed central court, to the opposite gallery on which a lintel still remains.

Plan of the centre-court tomb at Ballyglass.
The penannular central court is some 13 metres long.
To build it, a large house (the rectangle bottom right) was demolished.

Two views of the same tomb - now heavily overgrown - nearly 30 years later.
