Opposite the gateway into the field with the main bullaun stone ( Kilmalkedar (County Kerry)) in it there is a large stone built into the wall. Close inspection of this reveals a very shallow, but large bullaun.

The stone is a little over 1m tall and 1.5m across. The basin is around 50cm x 40cm and 10cm deep. This one's easy to miss, but look out for it after you visit the really good one. Be careful though. It's on a nasty bend in the road.

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.
