Holed Stone

The holed stone, pictured left after which the townland gets its name, maybe all that remains of an entrance to a chambered tomb. The stone is much larger than it looks on this picture, standing at over 1.5 metres high and even more in width. I hope to return for some better images, when the crops are not as high.

Situated: From Slane take the N2 north, six kilometres after Collon take a left on to the R165 for Kells, then take the second left, the stone can be seen in a field to your left about 400 metres down this road.
