St Patricks Chair.

In a field called Magher y Chairn in the Parish of Marown, between Braaid and Crosby, there are three granite stone slabs standing tall next to each other which are known locally as “St Patricks Chair” or”Chairn y Pherick”. Two of the slabs have early Christian crosses carved on the front of them. Originally there were five granite stones standing but two have fallen over and lie amongst the other large stones which may have formed part of a burial site. The site itself is protected by a wire fence to stop any damage to the remaining stones as it stands in a field used for farming sheep.
