  Known locally as "The Giant's Bed"and in irish as "Cloghroenapeastia",this
megalithic structure can be found very close to the road in the town of Castleconnell,
off the N7 north of
Limerick city. It looks at first to be earthen-fast but further close
investigation showed a small gap and earth beneath the massive slab. The slab is an
impressive 2.1m in length,1.6m in width and .50m in depth. It is covered in small cup
like depressions and in one corner is what can only be described as a depression the
size and shape of left foot,size 9 to be exact. It is aligned north-south with a tall tree
at the northern end and small boulders to the south which maybe field clearance.
