Visit Notes

Sunday, 6th July 2003

The ruins of this church are not at all noteworthy. The graveyard is quite interesting though, because the graves form an almost continuous carpet of flagstones upon which you have to walk to get anywhere. There are also a large amount of very crude crosses cut from slabs of slate or shale marking some of the graves. Well worth stopping by to have a look if you're on you way to Rusheen West (County Mayo).

About Coordinates Displayed

This is an explanation of (and a bit of a disclaimer for) the coordinates I provide.

Where a GPS figure is given this is the master for all other coordinates. According to my Garmin these are quite accurate.

Where there is no GPS figure the 6 figure grid reference is master for the others. This may not be very accurate as it could have come from the OS maps and could have been read by eye. Consequently, all other cordinates are going to have inaccuracies.

The calculation of Longitude and Latitude uses an algorithm that is not 100% accurate. The long/lat figures are used as a basis for calculating the UTM & ITM coordinates. Consequently, UTM & ITM coordinates are slightly out.

UTM is a global coordinate system - Universal Transverse Mercator - that is at the core of the GPS system.

ITM is the new coordinate system - Irish Transverse Mercator - that is more accurate and more GPS friendly than the Irish Grid Reference system. This will be used on the next generation of Irish OS maps.
