Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments

Tooreen East - Standing Stone

Tooreen East - Standing Stone

Located in a small clearing of the Tooreen woods, this standing stone is modest in size measuring just 0.7 metres tall x 0.6 x 0.7 m.

The old red sandstone conglomerate overlooks the Ring Barrow and other stones which are 80m to the south. It’s orientation is NE – SW.

It most likely had an association with the nearby monuments.



Directions: See Tooreen West Stone Row

From the Tooreen West Stone Row, walk about 100 metres west along the forest boundary till you see a marker pointing to an entrance to the forest going south. Enter the woods here and walk 80 metres south along the path till you reach the first clearance where the stone is located.
