Ballyboher

Standing Stone

I took a quick trip around some megalithic sites in south Wexford, I had visited a lot of medieval sites recently so It was great to visit a few megaliths. My first port of call was this monster of a stone at Ballyboher, it stands 2.7 metres high and is 1.45 metres wide at the base, along the NE-SW alignment. The stone leans to the north east at the top, see top image. It stands on private ground, inside an all weather horse gallop, so permission is needed before visiting. It is a real stunner, a superb start to my day.

Situated: From Tomhaggard head north for 600 metres. Turn right onto the R736. After 2.1K take a right turn leaving the R736. Take the next left, the field is on your right. Ask at the next house on your right.
