The bullaun stone is on the left-hand side, against the field wall, half hidden by the high grass.


One of the most beautiful bullaun stones I have ever seen. It's a big block of stone against the south-southeast (195°) side of a field wall, with three bullauns one next to the other. It might look like a huge wash basin.
The side towards the road ends to a point.
The stone measures 1.30 metres across, 83 centimetres deep to the wall, and is about 75 tall.
Each bullaun has a diameter of about 30 centimetres, even if the westernmost bullaun is elliptical and the minor diameter is 24 centimetres.

The stone is also known with the name of Na Trí Umar Bheannaith, meaning "The Three Holy Water Fonts".

This bullaun stone isn't marked on the OS Map.
