Drumskinny Stone Circle

Places to See | Co. Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.

Drumskinny (from Irish: Droim Scine meaning “knife ridge”) is the site of a stone circle in the townland of Drumskinny, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. With the inclusion of an adjacent cairn and alignment, the stone circle is a State Care Historic Monument.

This stone circle is part of a complex of five in this immediate locality, dating back to the new stone age, 2250 B.C. The purpose of the circle, made up of 39 stones and a small round cairn, is unknown but probably involved that of religious practices, astronomical observations and calendar functions.

The complex, which has been well restored and is easily accessible, is a very pleasant site to visit. It should be high on the list of places to see in Co Fermanagh.
