Shantemon Stone Row

Shantemon Stone Row

Midlands Ireland | County Cavan

Shantemon Stone Row is situated in the middle of a conifer plantation on the northern slope of Shantemon Hill in County Cavan. It is also known as "Finn McCool’s Fingers", and legend says that these stones are fingers of a legendary giant warrior. The alignment is 16 m long, is lined up along a NE-SW axis and consists of five boulders graded in height from 0.5 m to 2 m. The monument dates back to the Bronze Age and probably had some astronomical functions, but these are only guesses. The purpose of the stone alignments has yet to be proven.
