Glantane East

The Glantane East megalithic complex is a group of ancient standing stones located in County Cork, Ireland. It consists of a circle of 14 standing stones, with an additional stone lying horizontally in the center of the circle. The stones are estimated to be around 4,000 to 5,000 years old and were likely used for religious or ceremonial purposes by the people who built them.

The tallest stone in the circle is just over 2 meters high, while the shortest is around 1 meter tall. The horizontal stone in the center of the circle is approximately 3 meters long and 1.5 meters wide.

The Glantane East megalithic complex is one of several such ancient sites in Ireland, and it is believed to have been constructed during the late Neolithic or early Bronze Age period. The site is open to the public and is a popular destination for tourists and visitors interested in ancient history and archaeology.
