Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments

Tooraneena

Tooraneena

The Tooraneena standing stone is an old looking rough conglomerate which measures 1.55 metres in height and is 0.75 meters wide. It is oriented NE-SW and is presently leaning SE in the direction of Crohaun mountain whose peak is visible from the site on the distant horizon.

 

Directions: From Dungarvan take the R672 travelling NW for 3 km till you reach the junction with the N72.  Just up the road a short distance is the Master McGrath monument. Continue on this road ( R672) for about 7km till you pass a shop at a crossroads. At the next crossroads which is about 2km further on turn right. Take the first left. Drive 1 km till you see a small right turn. The stone is directly opposite this turn two fields to the left.
