Standing Stone / Menhir


I found this possible standing stone when I went back to photograph the stone at Skahard.
This stone is even more impressive and if genunine is a real corker.
Its over 2.5m and from one side looks like a thin slender standing stone and from the other more of a behemoth.
It is situated on a hill near the school of Bohermore just on the outskirts of Limerick City.
Both standing stones in the area are intervisible from a ring-fort as can be viewed in one of the pics.

For some reason this stone is named as a "stone circle"
The 25" 1840s map shows this as a Legaun with no mention of a circle.
