Stone Circle (Destroyed)


Description from

In gently undulating, wet, rushy pasture. Walshe (1931, 127) describes it as, ‘a ruined stone circle, 26 yards [c. 23.8m] in diameter. Of the fifteen stones still extant, only 6 remain in their original position.’ In 1985, the stone circle was found to have been destroyed, with two large displaced pieces of rock on the site which may originally have formed part of the circle (SMR file). A second stone circle (KD029-023----) stands c. 830m to the NNE in Broadleas Commons townland.
