The Carrigagulla A stone circle
Carrigagulla is a megalithic complex located 2.9 km north-east of Ballinagree, County Cork, Ireland. It comprises two recumbent stone circles, two stone rows, and an ogham stone which has been moved around a half mile away. The main site is an axial stone circle, 8.2m in diameter, comprising 16 stones, with one misplaced. Their height varies from 30 cm to 90 cm. The long, straight-edged axial stone is not the lowest, and the highest is next to the lower of the two portal stones. A boulder is situated in the middle of the circle. About 250m north, near the River Laney, is another stone circle: of five stones in a D-shape, with an axial stone with a naturally bevelled upper surface.
A 7.8m diameter stone circle comprising 15 standing stones circling a central slab. It is thought that there originally may have been 17 stones in place. Grid Ref: W 371 835
