Coming out of Caher on the road to Clonmel this standing stone is on the first imposing hill on the right hand side. There seems to be a lighting conduction on the hill as well. Part on the right-hand side of the road and access is easy enough thru two fields.
The stone itself is about 2.5m high and I wonder does the look of it and the fact it has a lightning conductor beside it are connected, perhaps it used get hit by lightning regulary!
The views from the top of this hill and panoramic and stunning. On a clear day you can see all the cairns that top the hills around these parts.
