This Is Not A Repeat!

What? More bullaun stones? Surely not!? I'm afraid so, folks. After a quick chat with Chris Corlett during the week I was armed with loads of information about some bullaun stones that I've looked for many times. Today I found them, so I owe Chris great thanks.

As well as the many bullaun stones I was also able to find several pieces of rock art that I've been hunting down for many years now. I've been looking for one of them for 7 years! ... and it's in somebody's front garden. It was feared that the stone had been lost or buried, but it's safe and sound.

I met up Ken Williams in the afternoon, but we were both limited in time by then. We went to the lovely, but worn, rock art panel at Tinnacarreg. Hiding under the brambles that covered the stone until recently we uncovered two bullaun stones right next to the panel. After that we headed off to track down a second stones in Ballinkillin.

What a great day. Six bullaun stones and five rock art panels. The crazy thing is that I drove past at least 15 bullaun stones en route! You can only have days like this around the Wicklow Mountains.
