Poul-na-maddra-ruadh (Cairn(s)) — Fieldnotes

This cairn is at 726m and on the peak of Monavullagh mountain. The cairn itself has been artifically modified into a shelter for climbers and to be honest with the weather that we had on the day it was a welcome relief.
Again there is evidence of a kist in the bottom of it. The cairn itself must be about 7m in diameter.
Interestingly enough it is rock outcrop that can be viewed from ground level.

This cairn is the next marker on the trail up the slope of Monavullagh Mt. It is a low cairn with evidence of a kist in its centre with fabulous views both North and South. Interestingly enough the cairn on top of Poul-na-maddra-ruadh can not be viewed from here. bawn79 Posted by bawn79

Monavullagh Standing Stone (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

This is a lovely standing stone on the slope of Monavullagh. It is about 2m high and about 0.5m wide. One side of it appears to have been painted/ whitewashed. To the north in the heather there are three more large slabs that Fourwinds discovered and look like they may also once have been standing before. bawn79 Posted by bawn79
