I did a full circuit of the Wicklow Mountains today. The trip didn't start out being completely about bullaun stones, but it ended up that way. I had intended to see some standing stones, too, but the evil rain kept stopping and starting and everytime I was near to something other than a bullaun it was very hard.
At last I managed to find the bullaun at Knocktemple that had eluded me on a previous attempt. I don't know why I didn't find it to be honest as it's out in the open. I was definitely in the right area the last time, but I must not have entered the correct field.
Other new bullauns visited today include one near to Aghowle Lower (County Wicklow) and a field full of them in Brockagh townland near to Glendalough. This field contains no less than 8 bullaun stones, but four of these make up one monument known as The Seven Fonts. This field has recently been bought by the State and I wanted to see the site before it gets any tourist attracting treatment. I only managed to locate 6 of the stones in the field, missing two double bullauns.
I finished the day by revisiting the marvelous bullaun stone at Clonmore (County Carlow).
Last week a small landmark was made on this site when I posted the 6500th image. That's a lot of images and there's now over 1650 sites here, too.
