|Description ||Reenascreena Stone Circle in Co, Cork, Ireland (W265 410).
Not the flashiest photo I've ever taken but, for me, it catches the essence of one of my favourite places anywhere! Reenascreena stone circle, the "Ring of the Shrine", is a delightful monument. Emerging from an abundance of reeds this twelve stone circle is just over 9m in diameter and is unusual in being surrounded by a wide ditch (often full of water!) and an equally wide low bank with no gap for entry. Flat topped portal stones, just 1.4m in height, stand at the ENE of the circle opposite an 0.6m tall and 1.1m long recumbent or axial stone. |
