Doonfeeny Standing Stone

Doonfeeny Standing Stone

West Ireland | County Mayo

Doonfeeny Standing Stone is located on the old graveyard, 3km northwest of Ballycastle in County Mayo, not far from well known ancient site of Ceide Fields, just of the road R314. This megalithic monument is standing here maybe even from the times of Bronze Age, majestically overlooking the Downpatrick Head and its Dun Briste sea stack. Doonfeeny Standing Stone is almost 5m high, what makes it one of the tallest in Ireland. In the Early Christian times, around sixth or seventh century or maybe earlier, two crosses were carved on stone. The monument is situated not to far from Foghill, where St Patrick was held as a slave in his youth. In that time, it could be well known landmark for young Patick.
