Balrothery

Standing Stone

Situated on a communal green in the centre of a new housing estate in Balrothery is the rather handsome looking standing stone pictured above. The stone is standing on a small knoll, which gives this monolith the appearance of being much taller. At only 1.3 metres in height the stone is actually quite bulky. I do hope this stone is treated with due respect, but I have the feeling it may end up being used as a goalpost.

Situated: From Dublin take the M1 north, then take the first Balbriggan exit and follow the signs to Balrothery. The village is located on your right, as you leave the main road Drive passed the church and turn left, then take the second right, the stone is approximately 150 metres up this road.
