A pair of sapper’s marks or ordnance datum points marking the corners of the former Military Barracks in Portumna. The letters WD refers to War Department. There were likely four of these stones originally marking out the full extent of the military property. Two are all that can be seen today though it is believed there may be a third in the Eircom compound.
