Glendalough A, Bullaun Stones, Brockagh, Co. Wicklow.

Location – This cluster is close to the gate of the field where they are located. They are across the road from the main monastic city. 

OS: T 123 970 (map 56)
GPS: T 12343 97018 (Accuracy – 5m)
Longitude: 6° 19' 33.49" W
Latitude: 53° 0' 43.59" N

Description and History – These two stones are part of a cluster of four which together make up the ‘seven fonts.’ Four of the ‘fonts’ are located in one stone alone in a strange cut out depression. I missed two of these four stones and I hope to revisit in the future. 

Difficulty – These are the easiest in this field as they are close the gate. The field gets very boggy.



I've never seen a bullaun like this with three hollows inside a square depression.
