Aghnacliff, county Longford.

Nearest village: Aghnacliff


This surprising sculpture has two capstones which from the angle of approach (see thumbnail picture)
seem to be balanced one on the other.
The upper one is the larger, over 3 metres long and 1.5 metres thick,
supported both by the smaller capstone beneath and by the one surviving portal-stone which is 2 metres high.
