There are 5 standing stones clearly shown on the OS map to the norht of Lough Gur.
They are two far apart to be called a stone row I thing and may be more of an avenue.
Eogan in the North Munster Project suggests they may be leading towards a ford on the river camoge or may be a territorial marker between two different areas.
The stones arent particulary dramatic all smaller than 0.5m high.
The fourth stone is missing and talking to a local guy he told me there was a deal made over its removal.
The North Munster Project shows a few more stones to the south of this that arent on the OS map and I will try and investigate these also.
I think they may be a route from the ceremonial Lough Gur to the defensive hill-fort at Knockroe.
