This is marked as a possible standing stone in archaeology.ie. It is in a field next to a road which links the Dundrum and Cappaghwhite roads coming from Tipperary Town. It is more probably a scratching post. bawn79 Posted by bawn79

This is less than 500m from the possible standing stone in the same townland.

Archaeology.ie classifies this as a "real" standing stone. The fact that it is next to a ringfort probably reinforces this. It is a small rectangular stone.
