Stone row, Farranamanagh

Category: 
A stone row of three stones, only one still standing

This cluster of stones is on a small ridge over looking Dunmanus Bay. Originally they may have formed a stone row but now only one of the three stones is still standing. The stones are large and imposing and one of the fallen ones contains cup marks - circular indents made by hammering with a pick.

An alternative explanation for the stones is that they are the remains of a wedge tomb (Jack Roberts)
