Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments

Ballyadam

Ballyadam

When I first saw this interestingly shaped standing stone it was barely visible with the top just protruding above dense undergrowth. Immediately its profile reminds one of  “The White Lady” standing stone at Ballymacaw because of its figure like shape.

Almost like a wild prehistoric primate, it stands partially hidden on marshy wet land just beside a road junction.

The stone, which has a stocky appearance is leaning slightly forward and measures 1.2 metres in height and is just over 1 metre wide.

It's orientated in a N-S direction and appears to have suffered frost damage at the tip.

The stone is not marked on OS maps or referred to in the Waterford Archaeological Survey.

 

Directions: From the village of Fenor drive towards Annestown on the R675. After 1 km you come to right turn. Just beyond this the road bends to the left and immediately there is a small road to the right. Here, the stone is visible in the field, just a short distance in front of you.
