Just a few of the perching stones of the Dromderalough ridge. (Expand pics)
Stony Ridge, on balance improbable
There's plenty of boulders left by glaciers all over Ireland. Drumnalifferny and the Saggartnadoishs come to mind. And there's plenty of them at odd, unstable angles. However recently I was on the ridge with the Dromderaloughs just SW of Mangerton and there seemed to be more than I have ever seen in any one area before.

Geologists: why so many here? Why so many at unstable angles? And is there anywhere else in these islands like this place?

When they are made of a different rock to what they are resting on, they are called erratics.
