Story (48)

In Glenlara about three miles west of Nemarket, there is a rough rushy field on the left hand side of the road. In this field starting from the southwestern fence, there are about six fairly large rough stones in a row, about two yards apart, all in a direct line towards the East.
The people there say that the stones were placed there by the Druids in Pagan times. The druids worshipped the sun as one of their Gods, and these stones pointed directly east, towards the rising sun.
Here it is thought, they used to offer sacrifices to the sun god.
