Roshin South Portal Tomb

The Portal Tomb of Roshin South is integrated into a field wall, located southwest of Dungloe in the townland of Roshin South (Irish: An Roisín Theas) in the region known as “The Rosses” (Irish: Na Rosa) in the northwest of County Donegal, Ireland. Portal tombs are megalithic structures found on the British Isles, characterized by two equally tall, upright stones with a door stone in between, forming the front of a chamber covered by a partially massive capstone. The small Portal Tomb is damaged; the capstone is missing, and the 1.7 meters tall portal stones are inclined towards each other. The chamber is approximately 4.0 meters long and 1.0 meter wide. The sides of the chamber consisted of two stones each, but one stone on each side is missing. The end stone stands at about 1.0 meter in height.
