Visit Notes

Sunday, 30th December 2007

I am not 100% sure of the townland name, nor of the monument type here. The remains are very odd, but very large.

The site stands inside a protective fence in open pasture. It was getting rather dark when I arrived, so I can't comment too much on views etc. From the road the site appears to be a mound with a few stones poking out, but the far side is very different. Massive stones line the south and western flanks of the mound, which could be part of a gallery and court.

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.
