Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments
'I came across this huge stone in the Glenpatrick area while browsing around in the mist that frequently covers the heather covered mountainside there'.
The stone is a huge conglomerate which measures 2 metres in length. It is1.6m wide and 0.8m high. It slopes back slightly and has an space underneath of about 0.4 m in height at the front which gets lower towards the rear of the stone.
The question is, is it a naturally occurring rock that maybe was adapted for burial or could it possibly be an authentic place of entombment.
