You will notice numerous cromlechs or dolmens scattered over the Irish countryside. These are generally very large stones, standing upright, with one bid flat rock laid on top of them. Typically, there are usually three uprights and one table rock. Historians tells us they mark the burial places of Kings, princes and persons of royal blood but there is only one in Ireland which, according to Dr O'Donovan, can be satisfactorily connected with history. This famous dolmen is located on farming land in Ballina, Co. Mayo just behind the railway station.
