Visit Notes

Tuesday, 19th March 2002

A beautifully ruined church with a sadly locked gate. On looking through the gate you can see grafitti all over some of the tombstones.

The church itself is very ruined and in the early moring light looked quite wonderful. To the right of the building is a roughly carved stone cross and to the left a cross base. In front of the church I could see some very old cross slabs, but they are facing away and I could only truly see them when I pulled myself up on the wall.

I will contact the council in the next few days to find out when and if I can get the keys. Definitely worth a re-visit if I can get inside.

I was unable to verify reports of a bullaun.

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.
