Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments



The Ross standing stone occupies a central position in a field with a gentle south facing slope. The stone has a rectangular slender appearance and measures 1.65 metres high. It has a blunted tip and is oriented N-S. It stands close to what was once the site of castle owned by a David Power of Shangarry. Today, there is no visible remains of the castle.


Directions: From Waterford travel on the N25 towards Dungarvan. At about 11km there is a crossroads with a pub on  the left. Here turn back for Waterford. About 400 metres back on the left there is a gate into a field. From here you can see the stone.
