This monument is wrongly marked as a standing stone on my edition of the OS map 65.
It is located in Curraghchase forest park which is owned by Coillte. There is an entrance fee of €5 which is very steep in my opinion (megalithic opinion anyway).
The gardens are lovely and surprisely there were a lot of people here walking and enjoying the grounds.
The monument is located on a hill in woodland, although not a standing stone it did remind me of being in Narnia or something like that, a monument choked by the woods around it.

If anyone can shed any light on the history of it, that would be great.
