Situated on a fairly level landscape. This is a glacial erratic with a natural hole at its base on the S side, which is reputed to have been made by St. Laurence O’Toole’s hands. It had originally been at Rathmore castle (ME024-018001-) but it was moved to a corner of a field near the road (R164) from Athboy to Kells.
