“You Would Never Believe A Carved Stone Could Be That Beautiful”

Reviewed July 9, 2011

Finding the stone can be a bit daunting, but if you take R362 northwest from Athleague and turn right on the first L road as you leave town, cross a stone bridge, and you will see a very sharp turn to the right. Do not turn but take the private drive directly in front of you. Please drive slowly and in about 100 yards, you will see the stone on your right.
Castlestrange is an example of Celtic style carving known as La Tene which dates from 250BC. It sits on the edge of a farmer's field on private land. The owner has been very accommodating in fencing the stone to keep it from his livestock. The stone has open access next to his drive and a picnic table has been placed there for those who would like to snack as they gaze at the stone's beauty- very peaceful and serene.
Unfortunately, my photos taken on a sunny day do not do it justice.
