Visit Notes

Sunday, 3rd March 2002

I was running a little late and so didn't actually visit the castle, but just took the photo whilst walking to Kilnasaggart Inscribed Stone. It does look quite nice though and I think next time I visit the stone I shall take the time to have a proper look.

From Dundalk take the N1 north. Turn left at the junction before the N52/B173 island and take the first left. Keep following this road north and take the second right (still heading north) and you will reach the castle on th left.

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.
