Hmmmmm
A general lack of weathering ,surface differences all round and the clean breaks ,sharp edging suggest non antiquity.
The early edition map makers were very generally accurate.
What does local folklore say??
Might these be quarried and brought in some time in the past
the edges are catching my eye too recent / sharp etc

Cavan Burren

I visited the Cavan Burren geopark a couple of weeks ago. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It's a really special place: a fantastically preserved (mostly) Bronze Age upland landscape...with a distinctly ritual presence.
Access has been provided to all of the monuments in a sensitive and unobtrusive manner.
Most of the rock art below was recently uncovered during forestry clearance, and there is no doubt that much more remains to be uncovered.

Was that forest clearance recent because as far as I remember from my visit there several years ago the first megalith was in an area surrounded by trees, I could be wrong...Charles

Yes. The clear-felling is recent and ongoing. I’m not sure exactly how recent. Obviously since your last visit!
