Loughcrew cemetery, Cairn R2. Remains of kerbed cairn, 8m in diam. Rotherham, who excavated the monument in 1895, noted that although the chamber orthostats were missing, 'it's shape seemed to be cruciform, the arms facing the cardinal points'. He also found one decorated stone. (Rotherham 1895, 311-16; Herity 1974, 239-42; Shee 1981, 213)
The above description is derived from the published 'Archaeological Inventory of County Meath' (Dublin: Stationery Office, 1987). In certain instances the entries have been revised and updated in the light of recent research.
