A Mass Rock
In the middle of a field belonging
to Michael Duggan, Ballydrehid, there
is to be seen a large rock called
a Mass Rock.
This rock is in the field above
thee house and near a hawthorn
bush.
It is a single rock, and is at
present about five feet long, two
feet wide and a foot high.
When they were reclaiming this
field they dug around the rock trying
to lift it out of the ground, but
failed in the attempt.
