Taking the 'bull' by the 'auns'

My partner and I went down to County Carlow on a bullaun hunt today. We managed to locate a few, but failed with some. The bullauns in Carlow seem to be mainly deep conical ones - very unusual.

The highlight of the day, though, was definitely the rock-art at Rathgeran - truly wonderful.
