I was on the trail of Roth Ramach a standing stone that was meant to have been part of the druid Mogh Ruiths Flying Wheel in the townland of Dromline which is very near here. No sign of Roth Ramach but I did find this unmarked standing stone about 0.5m high with some quartz in the head of it. I met the farmer nearby and he did a lot of contract work in the fields around Dromline and can never recall seeing a standing stone there that looked like the picture I have of it. However he did recall there been a standing stone in Dromline in Kavanaghs farm. bawn79 Posted by bawn79

This is also in the vicinity and much easier to see from the road. It looks like a worked stone of some sort or the other. There is some metal drilled into the top of it and the top is pyramid shaped. I happen to meet the farmer that owns the field and he told me that there was a mound around it and that as far as he knew it was very old. He also did a lot of contract work in the fields around Dromline and can never recall seeing a standing stone there that looked like the picture I have of it.
