From Waterford city head west along the N25 for approx; 18.5 km until you come to the cross roads at
Ballyshunnock. Turn left here (south) and drive for about 2 km until you come to a large modern house on your
left (east) set in from the road. The stone pair can be seen in a field just behind the house a little to the north.
Access can be obtained from this house,through the two fields.
This fantastic stone pair is located just south of the N25,west of Waterford city. They are sited on a level,broad
rise in a level pasture with expansive views north,west and south. Marked on the older OSI maps as 'Leganes'
and on the 2005 maps as 'standing stones',one of the two stones now lies prostrate. The standing stone measures
an impressive 3.8m in height,1.3m in width,0.40m in depth and is triangular in cross-section. The fallen stone is
3.35m in length,0.6m - 0.76m in width,0.30m in depth and has a small hole bored through it at midway point that
may be recent. Their orientation is hard to say but the standing stone is orientated N-S and this may point to the
original orientation of the pair. Only a proper archaeological excavation to find the original pit of the prostate
stone can determine this.
