Visit Notes

Sunday, 14th July 2002

As I drove past this church I couldn't help being attracted to the incredible tower and its mad windows and so I decided to take a look around.

Had I checked my field guide before setting out I would have definitely stopped here anyway because of the cross slabs, but it was good to 'happen' upon them by accident.

In the grounds of the church are two crypts. In one of these you can see skulls and bones lined up on the sides, which is quite spooky - I'm gald it was a bright sunny day!

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.
