|KNOCKANOURA STONE ROW COUNTY CLARE
|Located SE of the school at Clooney, County Clare on a high ridge, stands this 3 stone row. They are marked on
the OS maps as 'Knocknafearbreaga Stones', which means 'The False Men' in Irish, and get this name from the
tale of the monk who was building a church in Tulla and heard the roar of his prized bull being attacked by three
thieves. He knelt down and prayed, cursing the person who was hurting his bull. The thieves were struck down and
became 'farbreags' or sham-men. The stone row itself consists of three stones, tri-angular in shape and span
about 4.2m with an alignment NE - SW and are 1.7m in height.
