Famous stone, yes, seriously!
by pdtempan  21 May 2010
The story about Cloghmore (An Chloch Mhór, 'the big stone') is perhaps more remarkable than the stone itself. According to local legend it was thrown across Carlingford Lough by the giant Finn MacCool while fighting his Scottish counterpart Benandonner. And that's no word of a lie (unlike some mischievous mistruths recently made up on this site about another stone!). Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/543/comment/4754/
