Miscellanea

"The Stone House" is close to Acaun Bridge, in the field on the east of the river, below the bridge. The stone which forms the roof of the cromlech is about 14 feet in length, and was said to have been thrown by a giant, the mark of whose hand is still to be seen on the under side.

From 'County Wicklow Archaeological Notes Around Kiltegan' by C Drury, in the Journal of the Co. Kildare Archaeological Society and Surrounding Districts (1905).
