This stone row is marked on the 1840 ed. of the OS 6-inch map within a small
enclosure called 'Lios na dTri gCloch' (WA013-038001). Situated on level ground at
the W foothills of the Monavullagh Mountains. A three-stone alignment (L 4.7m) is
oriented NE-SW. The stones are conglomerate. The NE stone has a rectangular
cross-section (dims. 0.9m x 0.45m; H 0.65m) and a rounded top. The central stone has
a rectangular cross-section (dims. 0.75m x 0.5m; H 1.25m) and a crested top. The SW
stone has a square cross-section (dims. 0.6m x 0.6m: H 1.6m) and a pointed top. The
distances between the stones from NE are 1.6m and 0.7m. A possible fallen outlier
(dims. 1.1m x 0.5m; L 1.85m) is adjacent to the SE, but it was moved to this position. A
possible embanked enclosure (WA013-037) is c. 80m to the WSW.
