On the eastern side of the road of the site of the Battle of the Boyne, not 300 metres above the river, are 2 standing stones and a double chambered souterrain. The easier accessible stone is little more than a scratching post, a metre tall and square in profile. The other stone is is the adjoining field to the south.

The souterrain has now been filled in, with just some corbelling and a capstone visible in one of the chambers.
