Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments
From a distance this standing stone appears larger than its dimensions. This is probably due its broad crested top which is just over 1 metre wide.
The stone itself, which is a conglomerate, measures 1.6 meters in height and is oriented N-S. It is easily accessible along a farm path which leads up to the field where it stands under the backdrop of Crohaun Hill to the south west.
By its location and peg shaped profile, it could easily be rated as one of Waterford’s more impressive standing stones.
Directions: From Kilmacthomas take the R677 northwards for about 6km. At this point you will come to a narrow road veering to the left. About 0.75km up here you will pass large farm buildings on the left. A further 500m on there is a farm track on the left. Turn in here. A short distance on you will see the stone straight ahead.
For access, ask at the farm which is on the opposite side of the road down a long avenue.
