The Boheh Stone

The Boheh Stone is one of the finest examples of neolithic rock art in Ireland and Britain. The carvings – mainly cupmarks, enclosed by one or two circles with a small number of keyhole motifs – date to the same era in which the well-known carvings at New Grange, Dowth and Knowth in Co. Meath were inscribed. This stone was later Christianised and called St Patrick’s Chair. From this outcrop there is a full view of Croagh Patrick.
