The block of stone seen from the southwest.


This standing stone is in the graveyard of St. Olan at Coolineagh. It's a chubby block of stone which should mark the burial place of the saint, but as matter of fact the stone was moved here from another field a long time ago.
The top of the stone carries two hollows that resemble two footprints. According to a local lore, St. Olan used to preach from the top of the stone. Next to this stone, on the northwest (315°) side, is a flat slab lying on the ground with faint symbols carved on it. The standing stone is about 85 centimetres tall and wide, and about 70 centimetres thick.
Nearby there are the ruins of an old church, but only the southeast gable survives.
In the same graveyard there's a ogham stone, but we missed it during our visit.
