Poulawack (Burial Carn)
Collection

The Poulawack Burial Cairn was used
for almost two millennia from the
Middle Neolithic to the Early Bronze Age.
Within the cairn were the remains of
sixteen men, women and children.
Most of the burials were placed within
stone cists (boxes) and some were cremated.

These artifacts were recovered during
excavation and are part of the National
Museum of Ireland Irish Antiquities Division collection.
