|History:||Macalister/1945, 294: `Discovered by W.R. Blackett, just outside the eastern entrance of the graveyard of the ruined church of Temple (F)enoach...Brash...sought for the stone and failed to find it (1869). In Hitchcock's notebook I find the information that it was situated a quarter of a mile north of Ballyquin...In a notebook left behind by Rev. Canon Hewson...I find the record that he `searched the cemetery inside and outside...but could not find it or hear anything of it'. He was told, however, of a `tall upright stone on the townland of Curraghnagarraha'...Subsequently Canon Power and I searched for the stone, only to find that it had been broken up and that the fragments had been used in building a field-wall'.|
