Situated in rough bogland South West of Knocknaveigh.
Drainage channels have been dug right through it exposing the buried half of the stone ! Hopefully this won't destabilise it too much.
For access,there is a gate by a ruin just south of the radio masts. Go through the gate, the stone is quite obvious some 200 metres South. The terrain is rough but not really wet. Just make a bee line straight for it,picking out the best route as you go !
