Sunday, 19th October 2008

This panel is massive! It is 6m x 1.5m and rises in height along its length. There is a step about halfway along the stone and both levels have carvings on them.

The upper level has two very large cup-and-ring motifs, a cup-and-ring design with a long gutter and a cluster of cups. The lower level has several cup-and-ring motifs.

Considering the size of the panel there is surprisingly few designs on it. When I first saw it as I approached I was expecting to see more motifs, but the size of the ones on the upper level and the quality of all the motifs more than makes up for the lack of quantity.

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.
