This bullaun stone is located just off the main cahir to clonmel road beside a fairly easily spotted ringfort across from a nursing home.
I jumped the fence and headed in to have a look, watch the bard-wire fence it is actually electric.
The stone is large and the bullaun must be about 600mm diameter maybe 300mm deep.
There are at least three other half bullauns where it appears the rock was split in half.
From here the hill of Slievenamon really dominates the area.
