Standing Stone

I was amazed to find out about the existence of a standing stone in Gorey. I had been researching the area on archaeology.ie when I came across the site on the monuments map. The megalith is about 2 metres in height and approximately 1/2 metre wide at the base, tapering towards the top. It is a very narrow stone almost blade like in appearance and is orientated in a NE-SW direction. There are numerous standing stones remaining in County Wexford and this is amongst the finer examples.

Situated: Very easy. Located on the grounds of Gorey Community School, Esmonde Street. Access during school hours.
