As with the Portal Tomb, the stone appears genuine enough but I can't believe it just 'happens' to be standing here.
It is far more likely to either be a reconstruction or is genuine but brought here from somewhere else.
It is approximately 2 metres high and has Ogham Script down one edge.

This standing stone is located in Craggaunowen folk park in Co. Clare.
It is about 1.5m high. It is mentioned on the information leaflet that they give out but is not on the OS Map.
