Sunday, 23rd June 2002

As you may have noticed I'm quite partial to a bit of quartz. I especially like quartz monoliths. I REALLY like quartz alignments and this is exactly what we have here.

The stone is a 'dirty' quartz - not solid - but these are still two lovely stones. They are both around 1.3m tall and sit very closely together - very similar to the Boherboy pair in County Dublin. They may be a male/female pairing, but if so then the distinction is a little vague.

The surrounding hills give the location a feeling of theatre taht is most pleasant.

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.
