Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments

Couse

Couse

The standing stone at Couse on the south side of Waterford City, is quite a modest one standing just 1 metre in height X.90m X 50m.

However, despite its unpretentious appearance, the stone is likely to have had some significance in prehistoric times as it is located just 0.75 km north east of Ballindud portal tomb and standing stone.

The small red sandstone which leans slightly to the south, is oriented in an ENE – WSW direction. Thus, it points in the direction of the tomb which is on the other side of the access road to Waterford’s outer ring road.

 

Directions: From Waterford City take the Old Tramore Road onto the Outer Ring Road.

Just beyond the last dwelling house on the left and before the Couse Roundabout the stone can be found in a field on the left.
