Hurlstone, county Louth

H 943 876 - Sheet 36

Nearest town: Ardee


The hole is 20 cms in diameter, splaying to about 25 cms.
This part of Louth used to be rich in standing-stones,
and "The Hurl Stone" is one of a chain of stones possibly forming some kind of boundary
- though equally it might be the only remnant (a perforated door-slab) of a wedge-tomb.
