Visit Notes

Monday, 31st December 2001

This ia terrible to find but well worth the hike 600m from the nearest road either across bog land or through thick woods.

It has a double bullaun the smaller one being 20cm across and the larger one maybe 25cm. The rock is an outcrop in the field and I suspect has a large part below ground. It was not possible to see how deep the cups are because the water in them was frozen solid.

A great find for the last day and trip of 2001.

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.
