Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments
Kilbryan Upper - Stone Pair
These two stones at Kilbryan Upper are situated on a North facing slope and stand almost 7 metres apart.
The taller and more dominant stone is just 1 metre tall while the smaller stone measures 0.83 metres in height. The stones form a NNW - SSE alignment. Another stone (arrowed in photo below) and which is much smaller, appears more embedded in the ground. It forms a somewhat rough line, thus raising speculation as to where there may have been a stone row here at some time.
A further 300 meters to the SW in another field is a single standing stone.
Directions: The easiest way of getting to this site is if you are visiting the standing stone and cairns at Treenearla Commons (at the top of the Mauma Pass) which is roughly 4 km away by road.
From the car park at the Commons continue the descent NW towards Kilbryan village. After 3 km and where the road is signposted left for Kilbryan take a right turn. Follow this small road for about 1 km. Where the road levels out there is a gate through which you will see the stones in a field on the left. Ask permission from the landowner who lives in a mobile home just a little further down on the right.
