This stone axe was discovered recently by a farmer while clearing stones in a ploughed field in the townland of Garrymore, Aughrim. It comprises of a wedge-shaped object made from mud? stone. It likely dates to the neolithic period though some crudely finished axes are of mesolithic date. The edges are highly polished while the two faces are crudely finished. It measures 16cms in total length from the the face of the blade to the tip of haft, by 9 cms at its widest point (across the blade) and 3 cms in thickness. This artefact was drawn to my attention by Hannah at the Battle of Aughrim Interpretive Centre.
