Visit Notes

Sunday, 20th April 2003

The circle is very scattered and very ruinous. Several stones still stand, but most of them are located in the hedgerow next to the picturesque stream that runs just 10m away from the site.

To me it appears that there was a multiple stone circle here (now destroyed) and a later attempt was made to erect a five stone circle at the north of the site. This is now represented by just three slabs.

What does make this site worth a visit is the boulder burial which is simply perfect!

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.
