Stone Circle


The memorial was to Tom Whitty - an American whose inspiration was the Sheepshead Walk - the stone circle was discovered as the walk was being cleared. The circle has 11 stones and there is meant to be a boulder burial to the immediate south of it. There's also a huge fallen stone to the west of it. The axial stone could be aligned to the sunset of the winter solstice. It's a wonderful place with fabulous views across Dunmanus Bay. Go the the tin pub - Tom Whitty used to be the landlord so there are connections all round! Posted by flora
