The first of the three standing stones, this is the one at the west end. Seen from the southeast.


I was undecided if classify these stones as three single standing stones or as a stone row. Due to the fact that they aren't perfectly aligned, I chose to classify them as three standing stones with the same coordinates taken at the middle one.
The three stones are roughly aligned west-east almost parallel to the R335.
The first stone is 1.26 metres tall, 1.40 metres wide and 31 centimetres thick. Croagh Patrick is 230° from this stone and the longest axis of the stone seems to point straight to the sacred mountain.
The second stone, the one where I took the coordinates for this page, is 23 metres east (85°) from the first one, it's 1.48 metres tall, 1.45 metres wide and 80 centimetres thick.
The third stone is 112 metres far from the second one, at southeast (105°), and measures 1.42 metres in height, 1.28 metres in width and 36 centimetres in thickness.
