MOYNE STONE PAIR, COUNTY MAYO
This great Stone Pair, marked on the OS map as 'Standing Stone & Church', are
located in the graveyard, west of the ruined church of Moyne, which is located NW of
Headford, 'Ath Cinn' County Galway. The pair, orientated NW - SE, are composed of
shale, have suffered damage from the elements and are relatively similar in size. The
north stone measures 1.65m in height, 0.40m in width and 0.26m in depth. The south
stone, slightly larger of the two, measures 1.75m in height, 0.44m in width and 0.30m
in depth and are spaced 6.5m apart. There is a bullaun stone exposed, embedded under
the west wall of the church, suggesting it is earlier than the church, 10m SE of the
stone pair.
