Miscellanea

This bullaun stone has a sweet tale to it. The wife of one of the labourers at Glendalough died during child birth. St. Kevin prayed at the stone and from then onwards a doe came and deposited milk in the bullaun cup for the child.

This tale rings of a much older pagan belief in my opinion.
