Well spotted Pat. Its typical of many similar examples throughout the Comeraghs. Many of these have the opening facing the southern or western horizon, allowing evening sunlight to light the interiors at either midsummer or midwinter. In almost all cases, the stones are supported or chocked on smaller intermediary stones.
