Ballymacaw Standing Stone, Waterford, Ireland

Ballymacaw Standing Stone is situated on the Waterford coast between the small coves of Rathmoylan and Ballymacaw near Dunmore East. The standing stone measures approximately two metres in height and its unusual shape is perhaps what led to it being known as ‘The White Lady’. Some sources state that the stone was at one time whitewashed or painted but this cannot be verified. From certain angles the stone has the vague shape of a person, with the rock appearing to have a head and two shoulders, as if staring towards the sea to its southwest. The stone is situated along the Dunmore East to Ballymacaw Coastal Path and is well worth a visit for the fantastic views of the UNESCO recognised Copper Coast geopark.
