Love this row. Is there a stone incorporated into the wall, making it a six stone row? ryaner Posted by ryaner

Yeah - it's a six stone row. As you say, - there's one incorporated into the wall !. Another great setting and intervisible with the circle lower down the hill in a different field.....
(if intervisible is a real word) !

Very little mention of this, and the stone circle, in Burl, or anywhere I can find, though I don't have the Arch. Inventory for Cork. ryaner Posted by ryaner

It gets a very brief mention in the Jack Roberts book - The stone circles of Cork and Kerry. "Reananeree/5sc/orientation 228/WSSS - the circle stands on the slope of a small hill less than 0.5m/1km north of Reananeree church"
The National Monument Survey has "CO069-026---- Stone circle - five-stone RÉ NA NDOIRÍ
Description: On low platform in rough pasture. Circle complete; orthostats are 0.6m to 1m L, 0.25m to 0.4m T and 0.3m to 0.9m H. Internal measurement along main axis, aligned NE-SW, is 2.4m. Stone row (CO069-027----) stands 120m to SSE. (O Nualláin 1984a, 37, no. 67)" for the circle and - "CO069-027---- Stone row RÉ NA NDOIRÍ
Description: In pasture, on W side of low hill. Row of six stones, crossed by field fence, aligned NE-SW, 7.2m in overall length. Stones decrease in height from SW to NE. NE stone is 0.3m L, 0.3m T and 0.2m H. Next stone, 0.25m to SW, is 0.7m L, 0.6m T and 0.9m H. Third stone, 0.5m from last, is 0.7m L, 0.25m T and 0.12m H. Fourth stone, 0.8m further to SW, is 0.6m L, 0.4m T and 1.2m H. Fifth stone, 0.9m from fourth, is 0.9m L, 0.3m T and 1.1m H. SW stone, 1.2m from last, is 0.65m L, 0.50m T and 1.5m H. Five-stone circle (CO069-026----) 120m to NNW. (O Nualláin 1988, 233, no. 220)" for the row

Love the way the stones gradually get bigger from left to right and are shaped almost like some neolithic launch-pad. Thanks for the info. ryaner Posted by ryaner
