This lovely little stone pair is not marked on the OS map. It is easily visible from the road that runs past its field. The stones are located on a small promontory that extends to the southwest. They are located so that the rising ground to the south impedes views in that direction. This forces the observer to look east towards the complexes at Coumeraglinmountain and to Seefin Mountain above them.

The stones are just 1m high. One of them has a round top, while the other has a pointed top. The alignment points to a spot somewhere on the southern slopes of Crohaun Mountain.

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.
