These standing stones are marked as a stone row and a single standing stone on the OS map on the lane down to the Carrigagulla stone circle. It seems likely that they made up the one monument at some stage. From Tom Fourwinds site he spoke to the farmer while visiting and the farmer said "that he can remember three standing in the field when he was young, but they fell. One of the gate post stones was dug up by him a few years ago some distance from the others. Was it once a very long row of five or six stones?" bawn79 Posted by bawn79
