It is one of three such stones in Ireland. Castlestrange Stone, this granite boulder displays the characteristic curvilinear ornamentation of Celtic flourishes called La Tène. These date from the Iron Age (c. 400 BCE – 100 CE), and were named for the site in Switzerland where such designs were first discovered and recorded.

From Athleague you follow the R632 NNW... More

There is a picnic table beside it perfect location for one. I am glad it is available for tourists and visitors to see, for free, and not moved to a museum. Truly wondrous,... More

Finding the stone can be a bit daunting, but if you take R362 northwest from Athleague and turn right on the first L road as you leave town, cross a stone bridge, and you will see a very sharp turn to the right. Do not turn but take the private drive directly in front of you. Please drive slowly and... More
