Glendalough B, Bullaun Stone, Brockagh, Co. Wicklow

Location – This is tricky to find and is on private land, across the road from the main complex.

OS: T 123 970 (map 56)
GPS: T 12303 97021 (Accuracy – 6m)
Longitude: 6° 19' 35.63" W
Latitude: 53° 0' 43.72" N

Description and History – This is quite a large bullaun stone and somewhat unusual as the bullaun is carved into a raised area of stone that appears to have been carved in relief. I have seen several older pictures of this stone when it was less grown over. Unless looked after this stone will disappear. 

Difficulty – Hard to find and the field can be boggy and full of cattle.
