- There is a remarkable upright stone in the townland of Knockroe in the parish of Ballinakill.
It stands about eight feet over the ground and is about four feet wide by one and a half in thickness.
The local belief is that a famous giant threw it from Knockash hill a distance of about three miles. They say only for his foot slipped when he was throwing it he would lodge it on the Ben Hill about two mile further on to the south.
It is supposed that when he slipped he knocked a piece out of the mountain and the gap is there ever since.The stone mentioned is marked on the Ordnance Survey Map (sheet 125) as Carrickbreaga.Tras-scríofa ag duine dár meitheal tras-scríbhneoirí deonacha.
