Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments

Kilclooney

Kilclooney

Standing in a sheltered landscape, this sturdy square shaped stone measures 1.87 metres in height and is almost 1 metre at its widest. Its orientation is NE-SW.

To the east is Croughaun Hill while dominating the western horizon is the imposing mass of the Comeragh mountains.

In the vicinity of the stone, and covered by scrub, is a number of  stones, one or two of which could be possibly standing.

 

 

Directions: From Kilmacthomas travel 2.5 km to Fews. At the crossroads there go straight for about 3 km till you reach a junction. Turn left here. About 500 metres down this small road you can see the stone in a field on the left.
