Stone row, Coolcoulaghta

Category: 
Originally three stone row, two stones now standing

Two large standing stones, perfectly aligned with Dunbeacon stone circle 400m away on the hillside. (The telegraph pole also fits into the alignment!) The larger stone has an angled top and is craggier, while the smaller stone is smoother with a flatter top. These stones were removed in 1980 but such was the public outcry that they were restored in 1983. There was originally another stone 50m away to the SSW but this was destroyed.
