While taking a spin in the Glen of Aherlow I found a sign to Rock an Tarbh, being curious to what it was I took a walk over and found this odd looking rock feature that looks a little like a bull.
Im not sure if this has any folklore attached to it or how new the name is but it would be interesting to find out whether it has an ancient pedigree.
