Description

Carved sandstone milestone, erected c.1840, set on footpath at corner of Main Street and New Line. Bench mark to base. Inscription set into recessed face has been eroded and is now illegible.

Appraisal

This milestone is an attractive item of street furniture. It is of considerable social and historical interest, attesting to the coaching era in Ireland in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
