I called 21/7/2016 > The stone had been removed. I am informed that it is in the process of being cleaned, and that it will be returned to site in 2017.

The stone isn't there now - it's been taken away for restoration work according to the guy working at the pet farm. Not sure when it will be back.

The Turoe Stone is a great treasure, but don't bother to go see it. The OPW has built a storage shed over it to "protect" it. The shed is locked, there is only one tiny window, and that window was smeared with mud from the...More
