Very, Very Wet In Kerry

I have finally gotten around to putting up the pictures from my last outing just in time to start adding the details of this trip. I set off for Kerry at around 5am to hunt down some rock art and to meet Ken Williams later in the day to visit an area that is simply packed with rock art. The weather forecast was horrible, but did hint at clearing up later in the day. No one told the weather that it was supposed to clear up, though!

I first visited a townland called Derreeny, which is on the opposite side of the valley to the masses of rock art in Derrynablaha 11 (County Kerry). I had some good coordinates and managed to find two panels. Considering the weather I think I did rather well. I had to change my clothes after getting soaked looking for these.

After these panels I set off to meet Ken at Kealduff Upper, where there are around 20 panels. We managed to see seven or so. Sadly, it was raining so much that many of my pictures are useless: my lens kept getting covered with splashes. Oh well, I'll just have to go back! Such a hardship!

Look out for my next book, Monu-Mental About Prehistoric Antrim, which should be available very shortly. We are currently waiting for it to return from the printers. I will, of course, add details to my shop pages as soon as it is ready to be shipped.
