This is a beautiful standing stone to the north of Knockfennel. It is on private land.
It is not shown on the OS Map for some reason (very unusual, I think the OS map for Limerick is missing a lot of stuff) however it is in the Discovery Programme book for the region.
It is about 1.75m high and seems to be carved at the tip into a semi-circular top.
To get there use the pathway that goes up Knockfennel and branch off along the lower northern ridges of it.
It is less than 0.5km from the main path.
