Lia Fáil (Stone of Destiny) , Hill of Tara, County Meath, Ireland
This standing stone is called the Stone of Destiny and sits atop the Hill of Tara, where the High Kings of Ireland were crowned. Legend has it that the stone roared three times for authentic candidates for coronation. In May 2014 the stone was vandalized and covered with a dark, thick-glossed paint. This photo was taken in August 2005.
