Visit Notes

Sunday, 10th June 2007

Located on a south-facing plateau with extensive views to the south and west. To the north a high rocky peak rises to dominate the site.

This stone really does appear to be an 'oghamised' standing stone. The top has been damaged, but the inscriptions seem to finish before the broken edges. There are ogham characters on the two southern edges, but these are very worn in places. The remains of the stone are still tall - over 2m. From the thickness of its base it could easily have been over 3m tall originally.

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.
