Stags and a White Scar

I had booked today off work to do something else, but these plans fell through. So, do I go into work or do I stil take the day off? Erm .... no contest. The recent 'rediscovery' of an amazing bullaun stone in Wicklow gave me the perfect target. Add to that the fact that there was supposed to be some rock art nearby and several more 'lost' bullauns, I had to go.

The second part of my trip was to locate the Gossan Stones above Laragh. Chris Corlett had mentioned these to me a couple of years ago, but I'd failed to find them at the time. The stone featured recently in Archaeology Ireland magazine in an article about their alignment to The Devil's Glen, written by Chris Corlett. A great reminder that I needed to see this male-and-female-style stone pair.

AND! The weather was great! To make the day very complete a large stag ran across the field at Drummin while I was looking at the rock art and the top of Scar was covered in snow.
