Standing Stone / Menhir


A cloven standing-stone; 2.2m tall*, or a very anomalous stone pair, acting as apt familiar to the nearby 'Cross of the Evil Spirit'.

Similarities in texture, colour and the apparently compatible inner sides of the two slabs indicate that they are two parts of the same stone. The confusion is caused by the steep angle with which they rise from their clearly separated ground-level positions.

*Archaeological Inventory of Cork, 1992; No.468, 64

Permission to visit this site may be obtained from the house on the opposite side of the road that runs southeast from the field.
