Listed on the OS as 'standing stones' there is just one stone visible now, but it is a whopper! It is very slender and reaches at least 2.3m high.
There is nothing else to say about it as the nearby telegraph poles intrude too much.

From Waterford take the N25 west and then the R681 south. After about 400m you will come to a left hand bend in the road, turn right here. Pass a road to the left and then take the left hand fork at the next junction. Where the road bends right you will see a track on the left. The stone is about 300m along this track on the left.
This is an explanation of (and a bit of a disclaimer for) the coordinates I provide.
Where a GPS figure is given this is the master for all other coordinates. According to my Garmin these are quite accurate.
Where there is no GPS figure the 6 figure grid reference is master for the others. This may not be very accurate as it could have come from the OS maps and could have been read by eye. Consequently, all other cordinates are going to have inaccuracies.
The calculation of Longitude and Latitude uses an algorithm that is not 100% accurate. The long/lat figures are used as a basis for calculating the UTM & ITM coordinates. Consequently, UTM & ITM coordinates are slightly out.
UTM is a global coordinate system - Universal Transverse Mercator - that is at the core of the GPS system.
ITM is the new coordinate system - Irish Transverse Mercator - that is more accurate and more GPS friendly than the Irish Grid Reference system. This will be used on the next generation of Irish OS maps.
