There is a big rock standing over the ground in John Dwyer's fort-field in Ballytarsna.
It is supposed that when the soil becomes limestone that the first limestone rock comes up to the surface.
Although there is a nature of limestone in all the land to the south of this rock yet from the rock right north to Moycarkey you have the real limestone.
