The tall standing stone seen from the west. The steel wire makes some rounds around the stone and then goes to the tree in the background.


About 500 metres from the Loughmoney court tomb is this tall standing stone, in a corner of a private field, next to the dry stone wall.
It's about 3.5 metres tall, it leans to the southwest by about 10 degrees, but the most strange thing of all is that it is tied to a nearby tree with a long length of steel wire. This support must have been placed in site many many years before, because the tree has absorbed and incorporated in its bark the wire around it.
