Late evening on the first day of the year and after two disappointments earlier I pulled the car over in the cul-de-sac on the southern flank of Croghan mountain. Twenty metres into the field is this weird looking stone, about 1.4 metres tall and one of those that looks different from every angle. One side of it is incredibly phallic and looks like it has been split vertically down the middle. It's well embedded into the ground but not marked on the OS map and I only found it from scouting the SMR at – I had a sense that this may be modern and erected as a cattle scratching post. ryaner Posted by ryaner
