Clonfinlough Stone 3D Model
Clonfinlough Stone, County Offaly, Ireland.
A glacial erratic piece of carboniferous limestone, the top carved face measures about 3 metres by 2.5 metres. The stone lies 2 miles east south east of the major monastic site of Clocmacnoise.
The origins and age of the markings on the stone have been the subject different conficting theories. Generally there is some consensus that the stone has been subject of natural chemical solution creating or enlarging holes and channels and that the markings have been added to or enhanced by human hand. Particular symbols including crosses are identified as likely being carved in the historic period, especially with proximity of the nearby monastic site of Clochmacnoise. Other markings may be prehistoric but then again they might not, in short no one is really too sure of anything about this stone.
