The coordinates for this are approximate, as I didn't have my GPS on me and this monument is not listed in the SMR. So, I think this is a new discovery by Marianne!

The souterrain is only partially subterranean and has a cairn-like structure piled around it. Most of its roof is missing and the front portion is filled with rubble. The rear part has roof stones in place and is quite empty.

The cairn is about 1m high and 15m in diameter, while the souterrain is 7m long x 1.5m wide.

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.
