Tashinny there is a large slab or stone twenty feet (wide) long and three feet wide called the "Giant's Rock". It is said it covers a giant's grave. Along side of the slab is a boulder or rock three ton weight with the track of his five fingers in it. He threw this rock from the Castle of Mornan and where it fell he wished to be buried there.
