This large boulder has been cleared from its earthfast position as recorded by Finlay (1973, 12-3), and lay for a time, decorated face downwards, beside the field fence to W. It has now been righted and the markings have suffered somewhat from the moves.
The stone measures a maximum of 3.45m x 1.6m x 1.05m thick and on one surface is an extensive series of some quite complex motifs. At the E apex is a cup-and-2 gapped circles, with a radial line which is punctuated with a 2nd cup-mark close to the first. SW of this is a cup-and-2 gapped circles with a radial line extending from the central cup to an external cup; the ends of the outer circle splay outwards to frame this latter. From the outer circle a narrow line runs E then NW to a cup-and-gapped circle. Adjoining the W side of the same outer circle is a cup-and-circle with radial line, set back to back with another whose long radial line extends almost to the inner circle of a cup-and-2 circles. This long line is flanked on either side by a cup-and-circle, both with radial lines which curve towards the central groove. Each of these is in turn flanked by a cup-and-2 circles with radial line. W of this group is a cup-and-2 circles with 3 satellite cups positioned equi-distantly along the outer circle.
To S is a cup-and-2 circles with a radial line extending from the central cup to an external cup which, itself, is partially enclosed by the remains of a circle. These 2 motifs are enclosed within a larger, sub-oval frame which comes almost to a point at one side. The remainder of the motifs include simple cup-marks and cup-and-circles, some with radial grooves.
About 18m N of the original location of the above stone, Orpen (1908, 12-3) noted a single cup-and-circle on the corner of a rock (KE053-089----). This has apparently been broken up for use as road-metal (local information). The above description is derived from J. Cuppage (compiler) 'Corca Dhuibhne. Dingle Peninsula archaeological survey.'
