Gardai in Dundrum are examining the vandalism of a four-thousand-year-old megalithic wedge tomb in current days.
The old wedge tomb, approximated to be around 4,500 years old, is located in Kilmashogue in Dundrum. Recently the monument has actually seen graffiti marked throughout the stones as well as litter consisting of beer bottles and also various other rubbish left at the site.
Talking to the Dublin Gazette this week, Great Gael TD Neale Richmond said: “I was horrified by the senseless damage caused to the chambered cairn at Kilmashogue, called a wedge tomb. This wedge burial place was first created around 2000 B.C and also some of the initial kerb stones are still in place.
