The stones are hidden behind a hedge.


In a field north of Camlough, half hidden behind a hedge, there are three stones arranged in a row which has a total length of 3.67 metres and is aligned along the northeast-southwest (35°-215°) axis.
The stones at the two ends are set vertically. The one at the southwest is 1.48 metres tall and has a maximum width of 95 centimetres. The stone at the northeast end is 1.33 metres tall, 86 centimetres wide at the base and tapering towards the top.
Between the two stones there's a stone lying sideways, 1.3 metres long and about 39 centimetres high.
There was another large stone lying flat on the ground next to the northeast one, but it seems it has been removed.

Some sources refer to this monument as a stone row or stone alignment. Another source refers to it as the scant remains of a passage tomb, where the two upright stones might have been the orthostats at the entrance of the passage. Given the aspect of the remains, I'd rather lean towards this latter classification.
