The Clonfinlough Stone

Map Reference: N042297 (2042, 2297)

The Clonfinlough Stone, Co Offaly is a large boulder covered with small indentations, some of which may be artificial. Two of the larger depressions have been joined to form what seems to be a footprint. Several groups of four have been joined with two straight lines to form small crosses. It is thought that some of the artificial carving may date to the bronze age but most of it is Christian. The carvings are very shallow and are difficult to see except with strong side lighting.
