This is an interesting standing stone. Take the tipperary town road to golden and turn left in Kilfeackle at the motte. Carry on this road until you come to a cross-roads/ church, if you are at the church you have gone too far!
There is good track across from a house about 400m before the cross-roads on the right hand side (Coming from Kilfeakle) follow this to its end and the standing stone is behind two ditches from here.
The stone itself is more lieing down than standing and id say is about 500-750mm high.
I couldnt get close to it with a herd of hungry looking bullocks in the field it was in.
Interestlingly enough in seems to be in a bowl-barrow or a depression in the ground.
Would be nice to get another look at it sometime. There is a ring-fort about 300m away.
