This is a nice little standing stone to the north of the Galtees and on the slopes of the Glen of Aherlow.
The stone itself is about 1.25m high and has lovely views to the hills in the south. Perhaps it was some kind of marker to the various notches in the Galtees but nothing really stood out to me.
It is about 3-4 fields from the road and the way I went in was pretty mucky.
On an aside, two lovely terrier dogs followed me the whole way to stone on a little adventure for them. They were so covered in mud I cant have seen their owner been very happy with them when they returned!
