Its not every day you find an unmarked standing stone of this size and height.
This is about 3m high and probably the tallest stone in Limerick so you never know what is out there until you go looking for it.
Amazingly this site is just beside a back-road not far from Bruff and it also has the fairy hill of Knocfeerina in the background.
The stone itself has some unusual looking cup shapes on one side.
