Loughcrew cemetery, site P2. Situated on a shoulder of high ground SW of the summit of Carnbane East. This is described by Conwell (1873, 65) as ‘about twenty two yards northwards of P1 are six large stones, three of which form a curve and perhaps indicate the site of a kerbed cairn’. The stones are still present and it is listed as a possible passage-tomb (Herity 1974, 239).
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.
