Carrigagulla NE

Stone Row / Alignment


This ruined stone row lies just to the south of the forest track towards Carrigagulla NE stone circle and is just barely visible among the trees as you pass about 100 yards from the main road. The tallest stone would probably have stood between 10 and 12 feet high but its hard to tell as the forest floor is covered in a deep layer of moss, roots and leaves. This stone must have fallen quite recently as it now rests on the stump of a cut down tree. There is at least one stone broken, its small, thin stump stands very near to the remaining standing stone which is wearing a wonderful jacket of thick moss. A medium sized slab about 4-5ft (visible) in length lies beside the large fallen stone, it is almost free of moss but you can't help wondering what this row (or whatever it was) may have looked originally. Probably quite impressive I'd say.

It's likely the very closely planted trees root systems caused the tallest stone to fall.

Sits about 20 yards from the track and is very easy to get to.
