Clonmore, Clonmore, Carlow, Republic of Ireland

The Triple Bullaun Stone, in County Carlow is a large natural stone with three hollows scooped out which it is believed was used for pounding ingredients in pre historic times.

A very large granite bullaun stone at Clonmore is located in the corner of a field next to a river. The stone is about 1.8 metres in length by 0.85 metres wide. There are three large bullauns, each about 30 cms in diameter and each approximately 15 cms deep. It was used for pounding ingredients in pre historic times as a mortar and pestle might be used today.

Nearby is an ancient holy well now much altered.
