Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments



This is another of Waterford’s unusually shaped standing stones.

An old red sandstone monolith, it measures 1.6 metres in height. It is 0.9 metres at its widest point and 0.4 metres in thickness.

It has a rounded tip and is oriented in a NNE – SSW direction.




Directions: Follow the N25 for Cork from Waterford. At Carroll’s Cross which is at about 10km, take the road signposted for Newtown and Kilmacthomas which runs parallel to the main road. Drive 2 km till you reach a right turn. Turn right up this narrow road for 1 km. Here just off a bend you can see the stone from a gate to the right.
