Standing Stone / Menhir


Worth a quick stop as you pass by. Beautifully set above Lough Brickland just off the Belfast to Dublin road in what is said, on the SMR, to be a potato field but was under pasturage the day I was there. Seems king Billy stopped by on his march to the Boyne all those years ago according to the commemorative plaque – maybe he was after the spuds. Pity about the massive flagpole beside the stone but hey, we know where we are. ryaner Posted by ryaner
