A protected Neolithic passage tomb built around five thousand years ago with highly decorated standing stones.
Knockmany passage tomb, or Anya’s Cove, is an ancient burial monument on the summit of Knockmany Hill, near the village of Augher in Tyrone. It is the remains of a Neolithic passage tomb and its stones are decorated with rare megalithic art. They are protected by a concrete chamber and mound, built in 1959 by the Department of the Environment, roughly resembling the mound that would have originally covered it. It is a monument in state care and the stones can be viewed through the entrance gates. There is no regular arrangement for unlocking the chamber. Prospective visitors who wish to examine the stones in detail should contact the Historic Environment Division who will arrange the opening of the chamber if staff are available to facilitate.
