The primary purpose of my trip today was to meet Ken Williams, photographer extraordinaire of megalithic monuments. I've admired his work for a long time and wanted to meet him (mainly to pinch some photography tips from him :-) and he wanted to know how to find Boleycarigeen stone circle.
Before we met up I stopped off at Castleruddery, which is now for sale! Wish my cheque book was that big. Anyway, I got talking to the 86 year old farmer who owns the field and he told me lots of local folklore which I'll add to the page soon. I also crossed a nearby field to check out two large stones I'd noticed whilst driving up the road. What I found was quite astonishing!
At Boleycarrigeen myself and Ken settled down to taking some photos. It was good to actually spend longer trying to take good photos. I think I need to do this a bit more often - perhaps this will rekindle my slightly flagging inspiration.
