|Description ||Browneshill Dolmen photographed in July 1999. This huge capstone is the heaviest in Europe, weighing about 150 tons according to the site noticeboard. The brown heritage noticeboard at the layby next to the R726 (find it on the right opposite a garage, about 2 miles outside Carlow going east) has the Irish name too: 'Dolman Chnoc an Bhrunaigh' and the English 'Brownshill Dolmen' underneath. (The spellings vary locally). There is gate here and a fenced lane leading to the dolmen, which you can see clearly from the layby, sitting at a distance like a huge mushroom in its fenced-off section of a field. On the site noticeboard the translation for 'Brownshill Portal Tomb' is: 'Tuama Ursanach Chnoc an Bhrunaigh'.|
