The bullaun stone is a single bullaun and quite disappointing. This is the first one I have sought out and I stood by it twice before spotting it sitting next to the church door. Its bullaun is currently full of gravel like some prehistoric litter tray.

Follow the N1 north from Dublin and then take the R127 into Lusk. Take the first right after entering Lusk and then the second right. You will come to a triangular piece of land between two roads with a church directly in front of you. The bullaun is outside the main door to this church.

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.
