Have you got this one:

By the cromleach sloping downwards,
Where the druid's victim bled;
By the raised stone pointing upwards,
Heitolyphics none have read.
In their mystic symbols seeking
Of past creeds and rites o'erthrown,
If the truths they shrined are speaking
Yet, in litanies of stone

I think this is a bit more of it:

Oh! Shrine him 'neath the cromleach
Armed and ready for the foe,
As an emblem that not death
His defiance can lay low.

It has something to do with "The Flagstone of MacKinley". A bit of folklore from the Carlinford Lough area.

Found in Legendary Stories - The Carlingford Lough District by Michael George Crawford (1913)
