A view of a monument at Dowth, Co. Meath; a circle of large stones of which four are erect. A man measures one of the tall stones by tying a piece of string around the circumference. Two men below the monument, in the foreground to the left, point at something below.
This once imposing but now destroyed, monument at Dowth in the Boyne Valley was at a place called Cloghlea, located just over the wall at the eastern end of the long stretch of road on which the great tumulus of Dowth is situated in the same townland. One of the stones still survived in the late 1960s, but now all have gone.
