I couldn't see these stones in the duck last time I passed by and i nearly didn't see them today in the long reeds. The photo in the Cork Archaeological Inventory (Vol III) shows these standing in a grass field. Now they are almost hidden in 1m tall reeds. The field is practically a bog. How heavily has it been farmed to get that bad so quickly?

This pair stand 1.2m apart and are around 1.2m tall. They both have a rectangular cross-section. They are easy to find if you know that they are just 15m from the gate.

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.
