Sunday, 6th January 2008

This mighty bullaun stone stands with an odd collection of other large stone in the field to the west of the cross. Alongside it there is a square-cut basin in the top of a massive, tall stone - presumably an earthfast font - and an upright slab with an usually placed small hollow that may have been a graveslab.

The bullaun stone is a huge one at around 2m long x 1.2m across. It has a nice single bullaun that is placed roughly in its centre.

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.
