|Description ||Glantane NE Stone Circle, Co. Cork (W283 841):
This partially destroyed stone circle is still an imposing presence standing in moorland on the east side of the River Keel valley. Only six erect stones survive of perhaps eleven to thirteen which would have formed a circle 4.5m in diameter. The stones vary in height from 0.5m to 1.0m and are surrounded by a 2.5m wide fosse and low bank, a rare feature shared by the fine circle at Reenascreena (cf). Two tall pillar-like stones lay along the outer face of the fosse and 8m to the SE of the circle. According to the Office of Public Works, these stones were erected in 1994 opposite each other at the edge of the fosse. It would appear, therefore, that one of them has subsequently fallen again.|
