The Cú Chulainn standing stone seen from the west. It does lean to the south.


This nice standing stone is said to be the one where the Irish mythological hero Cú Chulainn, mortally wounded by Lugaid Mac Con Roí, tied himself to in order to face his enemies and die on his feet. When Cú Chulainn died a raven landed on his shoulder.
The standing stone is also called Clochafarmore (Cloch an Fhir Mhóir).
The stone is about 2.80 metres tall and it leans by about 13° to the south.
All the place has a strong smell of manure.
