|GREAT CONNELL STANDING STONE COUNTY KILDARE
|This fine standing stone is located on the summit of a low hill in undulating countryside. It measures 1.9m in
height, 0.36m in width, 0.26m in depth and is now aligned NE - SW. Near the top of the south and north faces is
the beginning of a rectangular socket, similar to the standing stone at Crehelp, Co. Wicklow. Recently it was
moved but later replaced after the landowner suffered a fatal accident, so may not be in its original alignment.
