Carrickgollogan Wedge Tomb ::
Nothing much remains, just the walls and single, uninspiring roof slab.

Although there seems to be this one, fairly poor, tomb on Carrickgollogan it appears that there was once lot more here.
"A History of the County Dublin" By Francis Elrington Ball published in 1902 is a very late printing of an account of Dublin written at the end of the 18th Century.
Book 3, chapter 6 says:
"Within its limits is the mountain of Carrickgollogan (i.e., the rock of Ollaghan).
The objects of archaeological interest are cromlechs and cairns on Carrickgollogan, a rath near Rathmichael, the ruined church and round tower of Rathmichael, "Puck's Castle" (i.e.~ the castle of the pooka), Shanganagh Castle, and Shankill Castle."
