Bolart North Standing Stone, Offaly, Ireland

Situated as it is in the flat land of Co. Offaly its easy to see why the area was named Bolart; its Irish origin being ‘Bhuiale Art Thuaidh’, ‘Buaile’ meaning a cattle fold or summer pasture. What Bolart North Standing Stone was erected to represent is unknown. It is a large monolith measuring 3metres in height and 1.5 metres in width, and slants towards the North East. I have as yet been unable to find any local legends or folklore that is attributed to the stone, any information would be greatly appreciated.
