Holed Stones, A Wonderously Odd Tomb And Some Rain

This Sunday's trip was the final Non-Waterford Sunday trip for a while (I think). I headed up to County Down to see a friend and then head off to visit one of the last major monuments in Down that I've yet to see. Before that I 'nipped' up to south Antrim to take a look at a couple of new sites and one old favourite. Sadly, by the time I had driven back into County Down the rain had caught me up and the visit to Castlemahon stone circle had to be called off.

The sites I did get to included a revisit to the amazing, but still not tidied up, Hole Stone at Doagh. What a great stone this is: surely one of the most tactile stones in Ireland!

As well as visiting The Hole Stone I went to a nearby ruined stone circle, where I discovered what I believe is the site of the quarry where the stones for the circle were sourced. The other stop was to see the amazingly weird passage tomb near to Roughfort village.

I'd just like to thank everyone that has bought my book so far. I've been amazed at the uptake and am nearly out of stock! I shall have to order some more soon.
