Still in the same area, south of Carrowtrasna and west of the Rathfran Circles, the Breastagh Stone is probably one of the better known Mayo standing stones. It is about 9 -10 feet tall, set back from the road in a field. The ogham script runs up both edges of the east face of the stone. I'll add a translation of the script when I find out what it says. Well worth a visit. As with the other monuments on these few pages, there is a good view of Shreeloga hill and cairns to the west of this monument.
