The Turoe Stone

Map Reference: M626226 (1626, 2226)

This stone stands about 1m high and was moved from its original position near the Rath of Feerwore some miles away. The lowest portion has no decoration; in the middle is a Greek step-pattern. The upper half of the stone is covered in curvilinear ornamentation in relief. It is typical of the Celtic art style known as La Tene.
