Restoration of Tibradden Cairn

by Amy Rohu

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and South Dublin County Council have collaborated on the restoration of Tibradden Cairn, a mound of stone that forms a prehistoric cairn marking the summit of the mountain, writes Amy Rohu.

The cairn may date to the Bronze Age, though it may have been earlier and was originally constructed in the Neolithic period before later being reused during the Bronze Age. A partially lintelled passage extends from the centre of the chamber to the north east.
