NO1464 : Clach Na Coileach or Cockstane

Clach Na Coileach or Cockstane
Clach Na Coileach or Cockstane
Meeting place of the Clan MacThomas.
They built their first settlement at Finegand. One night a cock was heard crowing from the top of the rock. Because it was unheard of for a cock to call at night, it was taken that something was seriously amiss and the call to arms was raised, the men taking up defensive positions. As soon as this was done the cock fell silent. This allowed the ensuing raiders to be cut to pieces by the waiting clansmen.
