The Giant’s Boulder

The boulder flung by the Giant

In the centre of Crosshaven is a boulder, and the inscription reads:   ‘This boulder, which according to local tradition, was flung by a giant from the hills of Currabinny, to land on the green in Crosshaven’       So….be careful in Ireland, in case the Giants are still around, and decide to fling another boulder from the far hills!

    A good throw! Though not as good as Finn McCool’s from up there in N Ireland.
