Painting of Eightercua Stone Row, Co. Kerry, Ireland, Eightercua is an anglicisation of the Irish name Íochtar Cua which means lower hollow, íochtar meaning bottom or lower, cua meaning hollow. Stone rows are called Sraith Ghallán in Irish, Gallán being the irish word for megalithic stones, sraith meaning row or series. Stone rows consist of 3 to 6 stones set in a row, and are roughly graded in height, with the tallest on one end, shortest on the other end and are normally NE-SW orientated. One arguement is that Stone rows were erected on marginal farmland whose soils were degenerating, perhaps they may have been used to appease the forces degenerating the farmland. Most stone rows are isolated from other monuments, and some can be found on top of ridges, so that from many points of vantage they are seen in silhoutte against the sky. While rituals may have been enacted at particular times of the year, monuments, such as mounds, cairns, stone circles, rows and standing stones provide a link between megalithic tombs of earlier times and other ceremonial centres of later prehistory. The suggested date for stone rows is the period 1800 to 1200 BC in Ireland.
