A Day of Revelations and Disgrace

There are several sites that I have been meaning to get to for a long timw now. One of these was a suspected (fallen) standing stone in Ballinteer that I have driven past many times. Sadly I will never get the chance to look at it now, because the field has been bulldozed to make way for a new development. What cost our heritage?

The second may well seem a little disappointing when you see the pictures (you can see nothing of the overgrown monument in them), but there is still good reason to make sure its position does not become lost as it may be the key to a lot of the monuments around it.

The third one is a cist in the townland Lugmore on the top of Tallaght Hill. This is a gem!

Whilst heading back to the car from this site I took a spontaneous detour and discovered an unrecorded (possible) stone circle. How good a day is that!?
