Clonfinlough Stone



3 km east of Clonmacnois (near Clonfinlough Catholic Church) a large boulder lying flat on the ground in the middle of a field, decorated with a number of motifs including crosses, and something called "The split year" (acc. to H. Wirth, 1936) a circle divided in two halfs by a line. The rest of the 'decorations' are supposed to be natural, resulting from the effects of natural chemical solution. Similar signs were found on stones in Spain and were dated to the Bronze Age. Posted by Joe McGuinness
