Station 11, Faugher Townland

Hidden behind a hedgerow, with obstructed access is station 11, a small circular cairn. Placed in the cairn is a very weathered pillar stone, possible 0.5 metres tall, that once may have born a cross.  This is the most easterly station and is the point where the pilgrims would turn around and walk back towards the village. In the image below you can see the new house, where the small roadside cain stands. It is such a shame that access is blocked in this way, maybe some agreement can be reached with the landowner.

Situated: From the lane way at Station 10, walk 100 metres east to the next lane. The cairn is behind the hedgerow in the next field. On my visit, the main access point was blocked. I walked down to the next gate in the hedgerow and entered here. After unsuccessfully trying to find the landowner.
