Sunday, 9th December 2001

I could get no closer to these stones as the field was 'possessed' by some mad horses. I eventually spotted them by jumping up and down and peering over the hedge. These may be a male & female pairing. The right most one in the picture seems broken off.

They are about 1.2m tall and 1.5m apart.

Take the R736 west from the N25 away from Rosslare. Just over 3km along turn left at the crossroads and then left at the next small crossroads. The stones are at the far end of the field 200m along this road on the right.

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.
