Knockboy

Stone Row

After viewing the ogham stones at the nearby Seskinan church I just had to see this three stone alignment. These conglomerate stones are aligned NE-SW. The stones decrease in height from tallest SW stone, which stands 1.6 metres high to the 0.65 metre high NE stone. The central stone stands 1.25m high. A fourth stone lies prostrate to the south of the row. The stone was moved to this position so may have been a possible outlier. The row stood in a, no longer visible, enclosure known as 'Lios na dTrí gCloch'. A large embanked enclosure lies c. 80 metres to the WSW of the row.
