A moss-covered stone (dims 1.5m x 0.9m; T 0.25-0.3m) set upright on its long side in the NW corner of the graveyard (ME015-056007-) of CLonabreaney has about 30-40 cup-marks (diam. 3-5cm) on one face (Moore and Kenny 1976, 34) and may have had more as two shallow hollows probably represent damage. Eogan (2008, 5) tentatively suggests the this and other stones of megalithic proportions may have derived from a passage tomb. The above description is derived from the published 'Archaeological Inventory of County Meath' (Dublin: Stationery Office, 1987). In certain instances the entries have been revised and updated in the light of recent research. See the attached image. Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of upload: 7 August, 2014
