Dowth Passage Tomb ::

This stone is one of three exposed to the rear. It has 7 sun motifs carved in to it. These are now fading quickly. It also has carvings on its rear face. These carvings sparked searches for a third passage, but none was found. Perhaps they messed up the others and started again on this side.
