MOANMORE EAST EMBANKED STONE CIRCLE, COUNTY GALWAY
This rare Embanked Stone Circle, marked on the OS map as 'Seven Monuments', is
located east of the town of Loughrea, 'Baila Locha Riach' on the south side of the
Tynagh Road and is a Listed National Monument. The circle consists of a 2m high, flat
topped mound 14m in diameter, with a small earthen ditch on the top that slopes gently
down into a flat, circular plateau. There are eight orthostats, two now recumbent, sited
on top of the ditch and each one is aligned edge on to the centre of the circle. The well
matched orthostats measure 2m in height, 1m in width and 0.3m in depth. At the centre
of the circle is a small mound of stones, possibly a cairn and the sited is easily accessed
from the road 5m away.
