Macalister/1945, 128--129; `Several standing stones are marked on the O.S. map on the lands of Crinnaloo, all of them now removed by a decree of the Board of Agriculture (so the farmer informed me) to avoid the risk of infection passing between cattle using them as scratching-posts. But he also told me that these particular standing stones were not of genuine antiquity, but had all been erected in recent years to serve as scratching-posts, with one exception - a very tall stone in a ringfort called Lisagallaun'.
