This standing stone is located at the foot of Carrickbeg Hill just outside Carrick–on–Suir. It’s an odd shaped conglomerate which stands 1.55 metres tall and is 1.1 metres wide by 0.3 in dept and has a rounded crest.
Leaning slightly, the stone’s orientation is in a NNE-SSW direction. It’s curious shape is due to damage which is visible on its N and S ends.
Directions: Take the R678 eastwards out of Carrick. About 0.5 km along this road the stone is visible across agate on the right side of the road.
