Ballybrack Dolmen (EN)

stage image

Known locally as 'Ballybrack Dolmen', this monument is reputed to mark the burial place of Fial, the wife of one of the Milesians, who landed in nearby Ballinskelligs Bay. It consists of four large overlying slabs and a scatter of small rounded stones, including some quartz, occurs around the base of the structure. The Milesians are strongly associated with this area and are noted as one of the 6 invading forces to Ireland in the Book of Invasions, an 11th century text recounting epic folk tales of Ireland.
