Derreeny (394), Iveragh Peninsula (Co. Kerry)Your model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Large boulder incorporated into a boundary wall, located on a small hillside platform. Despite the many rocks which compose the surrounding landscape, this boulder is quite prominent and the carved motifs become very evident when one is coming up the hill. The motifs are mostly focused on one half of the rock, based on cup-and-rings. It is interestng to note that some motifs follow the top edge of the boulder, and there are some rather odd shapes such as “almost square” cup-and-ring motifs.
