THE TUROE STONE
The Turoe stone is a 1.68 metre high granite stone decorated in Celtic style. It is estimated to date to about the period 100 BC to 100 AD. The stone is now positioned in a covered protective structure on the lawn in front of Turoe House.
The Turoe stone is a National Monument of Ireland. The stone was previously located at a lios (fairy fort) at the Rath of Feerworesome, 3 km from Bullaun, but was moved to the present location at Turoe Farm, in the late 19th century.
The stone’s phallic shape has led some researchers to comment that it could have been related to a fertility cult.
