Dromroe, county Kerry

This very picturesquely-sited circle (the first that I ever visited) encloses an area over 9 metres in diameter.
Three of the 13 stones (including one of the entrance- or portal-stones) are fallen.
In the centre is a boulder-burial set with its long axis coinciding with that of the circle
whose flat-topped axial or recumbent stone is necessarily at the SW (the nearest stone in this photo which was taken on Christmas Eve, 1971).
Nearby is an unique internal monolith (to the right of the fallen portal-stone).
