Visit Notes

Sunday, 10th March 2002

Not a lot to see here really. It is easily viewable from the church yard near to the cross.

Directions

From Killcullen take the N9 south and turn right into Ballitore. Carry on through until you reach a t-junction and turn left. Take the next left and follow this road south. At around 3.5km you will see the cross signposted through a gap in the wall to the right. Enter this churchyard and walk through the church ruins past the cross and you will see the castle in front of you.

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.
