Dingle Peninsula Stone

P1010289When I got to this turnout, I was fascinated with the large stone that you see toward the middle right of the photo.  It looked almost like a grave marker, but it was thicker than the usual ones.  As you can see on the left, there was a fairly steep drop from where I was standing, so there was no hope of walking down there, and the upright stones along the top of the fence seemed to be warning people not to go over.  Anyway, below is a zoom view and you can see some carvings on this side of the stone.  When my niece and I return to the Dingle Peninsula in June or July, perhaps we can explore this stone a bit more.  There was no signs explaining anything, although this area has been inhabited for thousands of years.
