Visit Notes

Sunday, 13th October 2002

After the roadside treat at Annaghmore (County Leitrim) I didn't know what to expect here, but the usual practice of visiting roadside sites with a pessimistic approach avoid the disappointment that would have ensued had I expected another Anskert.

Dotted around the copse are some stones that really do not help you to determine the layout of the tomb. There are traces of cairn, kerb, gallery and court if you really take the time to study them, but frankly I wouldn't realy recommend this to anyone. This site really is not very interesting at all.

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.
