Moytura, or Magh Tuiread, apparently means 'Plain of Pillars', according to this webpage. They were apparently thrown by the Tuatha De Danann when they were waiting for the their battle to start with the Fomorians. One of the stones spotted by Ryaner has its own name - The Eglone Stone, and has at least two associated folklore stories.
