Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments



This monument at Ballygunnertemple is described in the Archaeological Inventory of County Waterford as a fragmented and unclassified megalithic structure.

Located at Mount Druid on the outskirts of Waterford City, the archaeological remains here are difficult to decipher as the site is much overgrown and unkept.

What has been previously recorded though, is two parallel stones and a displaced lintel which form a rough Cist (single burial) measuring 1.8 X 1.7 metres.

A few metres to the West are a further two stones which form the adjacent sides of a second Cist. Also on the site is a mound with a diameter of 10.5 meters.

The site is within a large garden of a private residence, so it is advised to first seek permission before viewing.



Directions: From Waterford City take the R683 for Dunmore East. Just outside the city at 2km, take the left turn signposted for Passage East. A further 200 meters from this junction is the entrance to the garden and house on the right which is opposite a small shop.
