Standing Stone Row Waterville on the Ring of Kerry

 

Traveling the Wild Atlantic Way of just doing the Ring of Kerry, look out for this magnificent standing Stone Row Waterville positioned on the left hand side of the road as you leave Waterville on the Caherdaniel direction. After going over the bridge as you leave Waterville the Standing Stones are positioned on a slight Hill on the left hand side about 1 km, on the right hand side there is a small lay-by to park for the driver to get a look at the Stones.

The Eightercua Stone Row in Waterville 1900 BC is a Megalithic tomb of four stones in an East to West direction aligned with the September solstice. Scéine wife of one of the leaders of the Milesians invaders to Ireland is buried here.

Other stories suggest that the Irish defeated the Milesians here at a great battle for the World and feared the Gods would revenge the killing of their Queen (Scéine) so the Irish erected these stones on her burial ground to please the Gods.
