Loughcrew cemetery, Cairn A2. Conwell recorded that this cairn, 'nine yards in diameter' was 'nearly level with the ground'; a single orthostatic kerb stone survived. The plantation in which it stood has been reclaimed in this area and a small scatter of stones indicates the monument. Listed as a passage-tomb (Herity 1974, 234). (Conwell 1873, 48)
