Since the photos on previous pages were taken, the phallic stone was again damaged by cattle, repaired,
and now is protected by a railing.
Note the displaced boulder at the bottom of the field:
was this part of another monument ?
The flat-topped female stone.
The groove on the top is a continuation of the crack visible on the side.
This photo nicely shows the tradition of stone pairs continuing to the present day in the form of phallic gateposts.
Compare these stones with those at Boherboy (Dublin), Rathglass (Carlow) and Tulnacross (Tyrone).
