Glencullen Standing Stone ::

This was taken on my revisit. The golf course owner told us to go through the gate to the left of the stone in the distance. He has no problem with that.

Miscellanea

As is to be expected with stones of this nature there are many attachments of magical powers. It was once known by the name of Queen Mab.

This stone is rumoured to penetrate the earth by over 20 feet. A landowner in the 1700's decided to try and move the stone to his house. The labourers gave up digging at 20 ft down, so the story goes.
