Croaghbeg Court Tomb ::

Showing the massive corbels in the rear chamber of the gallery that would have supported the roof slab.

A compartment in a tomb in which burials were placed. In court tombs and wedge tombs a chamber is a sub-division of the burial gallery. Portal tombs have single chambers and passage tombs can have anything from one to five chambers, although usually passage tombs are considered to have a main chamber with extra subsidary chambers.
