A circle of 12 large stones (2 forming a portal, with the axial stone opposite) is surrounded by a low earthen bank with a shallow ditch, similar to the circle at Glantane East. The axis points WSW and thus, unlike the nearby circles of Bohonagh and Drombeg does not relate to the sunset at either solstices or equinox. Solsticcs or euuinnx~ There are several other axial-stone circles in the neighbourhood, including one marked 'Stone Circle' on in sheet 24, 3.2km (2ml) due N of the Reanascreena site and 100m E of a byroad in Maulatanvally. Only 7 stones survive, including one portal stone 140cm high. Small quartz pebbles surround a central white quartz boulder.

Access: (4.8km (3ml) NNW of Ross Carbery and 800km (1/2ml) NW of a byroad at a height of 170m (570ft) and 3.2km (2ml) due S of the 'Stone Circle' marked on the map. [AW] This is difficult to find and is two or three fields away from the road. The first farmhouse I asked at had somebody in the house who refused to come to the door. I got lucky second time with another farm. [CH] See above for map links
