Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments

Kilbride South

Kilbride South

This is quite a slender standing stone and also an impressive example.

The stone is an old red sandstone conglomerate and stands 2.4 metres in height X 0.47 X 0.3 metres.

Its orientation is E-W at the base and it has a pointed tip which is roughly aligned N-S.

According to the landowner, at least two other similar stones once stood here, one in the same field and another in the adjoining pasture towards the North West,  but these  were removed from the site in the 1970’s.

Also in this area, is an ancient sunken roadway running N-S through the land which on occasions becomes visible when ploughing takes place.

 

Directions: From Tramore take the R682. At the first crossroads (which is roughly 1.5 km), turn right. From here go straight through the next crossroads which is at a distance of 0.3 km. A the first farmhouse and buildings on the left ask permission. The stone is located at the rear of these buildings in a field to the west.
