Another site that I've been unable to locate a couple of times previous. It's on the northern slopes of Sliabh Gullion about 3 kilometres south-west of Camlough town, as the crow flies. The area is gorgeous and wild, mainly sheep farming territory.

The stone stands in a little enclosure about 100 metres east of the boreen. It's about a metre and a half tall and leaning to the east and wonderfully phallic. The top seems to mirror the peak of Sugarloaf Hill about two kilometres to the north.
