Taken from the Irish Folklore Commission 1937/1938 Tipperary Reel 4 pg 207:

The cairn about 400 yards away is called The Krall. It is about 7 feet high and about 30yards in diameter. The stones are similar to the ones in the Labba although they seem to have been brought from outside the area. The owner of the field would not let anyone take these stones.

A ring of stones can be viewed from the Krall in the townland of Reardnogymore. They were found when the bog was being cut away. The stones are standing on edge about 2 yards apart and the ring is 30 yards in diameter.

The North Tipp Inventory states that this stone-circle is no longer here.

At the other end of the Krall is an "old Quick or white-thorn bush and from this bush a path can be seen ran from that bush to the Maher-Clay moutain a distance of about an Irish mile"

This sounds like it links the Baurnadomeeny complex to the Mahurslieve. Its also interesting the direct quote is "Maher-clay Moutain".
