Castlenalacht submitted by KaiHofmann : Castlenalacht stone row (Vote or comment on this photo)
The stone row at Castlenalacht is perhaps the largest and finest such monument in County Cork. The four stones form a row which is 13.5m in length, the longest in Cork. The stones are graded in height from 3.4m down to 1.9m and are aligned ENE-WSW. This superb alignment commands fine views.

A prostrate stone between the 2 smallest is not original. In the next field, 400m to the N, is a boulder-burial: a large rounded boulder is set on 3 supporting stones between 40 and 60cm high, and a little above a fourth stone.

Access: 5.6 km (3 ½ ml) N by W of Bandon and about 70m W of a by-road.

Note: new pictures of this fine Irish stone row now in from KaiHofmann
