Annaghmare is one of the finest single Court Tombs, known locally as the Horned Cairn.

The court tomb at Annaghmare is one of the best preserved examples of its type, with many of its features preserved in situ after they were first revealed during excavation in 1963-64. The horsehoe-shaped forecourt is defined by several large stones up to 1.9m high, with the spaces between filled with drystone-walling. The most unusual feature of the forecourt, however, is a small standing stone to the south-east of the centre.
