Atmosphere. Atmosphere. Atmosphere! And then some.

What a lovely setting for these two stones. Nestled in the corner of a private graveyard under a canopy of hardwood trees these stones are quite beautiful.

As you approach the graveyard along a path through the thicket you are teased with anticipation which is realised the moment you set eyes on these two gorgeous stones in this fantastic setting.

The taller, more easterly stone, is around 1.7m tall and the shorter one is perhaps 1.5m tall. Both are square in plan and of about the same dimensions along a side.

I love graveyard stones anyway, but these have to be the best I've seen to date. Go there now!

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.
