A view of this fine pair of stones from the North, with the Mountains of Mourne behind.

Midwinter photograph of male (left) and female festooned with barbed-wire to prevent cattle rubbing them.

Compare these stones with those at Boherboy (Dublin), Rathglass (Carlow) and Tulnacross (Tyrone).

The pair seen from the South-east.

The male stone in phallic splendour, seen from the East.
Evidently once broken, it has been re-erected and stuck together again with mortar most suggestively.

compare with the phallic stone at Mayo, not too far away.
