Farrannahineeny SW Ireland


Farrannahineeny, West Cork, SW Ireland (W 21506080)

1. Row ro SW

A five stone row on a broad hill about 25 km. north east of Bantry and orientated north east / south west.





2. Alignment

A  hill intersection 11 km distance  gives an alignment for the setting sun 8 or 9 days before and after the winter solstice. The time interval is similar to the alignment at Eightercua, but the upper limb is apparently used instead of the lower.  If the lower limb is used, and it could be, the visible sun setting into the shallow hill intersection, might be difficult to observe. If the upper limb is used it would arguably be easier to observe the disappearing sun.
