The standing stone has a profile that decreases from the northeast to the southwest.


This stone is easy to find because is along the N71 road to Rosscarbery, but it's behind a fence impossible to trespass. The access is from a lane 150 metres south from the stone. There's a house right there. We rang at the door but nobody was in, so we went to the stone anyway and walked along the path that runs parallel with the N71. The stone is very nice and worth the visit.

It's 2.10 metres tall, 1.55 metres wide and about 35 centimetres thick.
The top of the stone has a height that decreases along the northeast-southwest (60°-240°) axis to a height of 1.19 metres, and the stone's northwest face has about 20 cupmarks, some of them very shallow, and a few of them well visible.
