Aerial photographs and surface indications suggest that there might be a possible small passage-tomb some 60m E of the main mound (ME019-045----) at Newgrange (O'Kelly et. al. 1978, 251). Identified by O'Kelly (1978, 48) as Site Z1 in his Guide to Newgrange.
See attached pdf showing contour plan of Newgrange which shows location of tombs Z (ME019-044004-) and Z1, taken from Kelly et. al. 1978, 253.
