Drumskinny Stone Circle, Cairn

Drumskinny Stone Circle, Cairn and Alignment lies in upland bog and was drained after excavation in 1962. A circle 12.8m in diameter is made up of 39 stones, and a small round cairn is associated with an alignment, 7.6m long, of 24 stones.

The stones are fairly small and some replaced after the excavation are clearly marked. It is far smaller but of the same general type as Beaghmore circles and many others in mid-Ulster. Finds were sparse but included Neolithic material, so it is not clear whether the site dates from the Neolithic or the Bronze Age. There are other prehistoric stone monuments in the bog in this area.
