Shanbogh (Bullaun Stone) — Folklore

There is a flat stone on the side of the road in Shanbough (Sean-Both) which is known as the blessed stone. Shanbough is in this parish about a couple of miles from New Ross on the road to Mullinavat.

Long ago there was a giant, who was a saint, leaping from Tory Hill to Brandon. When the was passing over the stone he fell to the ground. One of his feet rested on the stone. Being so heavy, his foot-print remained on the stone and is still to be seen. There is always water in the hollow of the stone. People bathe sores or cuts in the water and are cured.
From the Schools Collection of the 1930s, currently being transcribed at duchas.ie.

Knocklegan (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

Knocklegan standing stone is now no longer standing, collapsed into the hedgerow and overgrown with brambles. I did a quick tidy up and revealed a roughly 2 metre long stone that would have been reasonably impressive when stood up, but now lies forgotten and ignored by the side of a pasture field. ryaner Posted by ryaner

Kilmog or Racecourse (Bullaun Stone) — Fieldnotes

Marked as a bullaun stone on the OS maps, this is a very unlikely candidate for that title. Maybe the hole/bowl is man-made, but I've read elsewhere that it goes right through the stone. It is however revered locally and has a rag tree beside it. ryaner Posted by ryaner

Kilree (Bullaun Stone) — Fieldnotes

North down the hill from Kilree monastic site with its round tower and high cross is this rock outcrop. There may be a bullaun buried under the grass, but the visible bowl-like depressions are very natural looking. The most likely suspect is very deep and seems to go through the stone, a bit like the 'bullaun' north of here at Kilmog. ryaner Posted by ryaner
