Having navigated to www.irishmegaliths.org.uk/iremap.htm...
you click on a county you get a page of text describing the
selected monuments, and giving directions.
If you use the relevant maps mentioned you can plot their whereabouts.
you don't have the relevant maps, here's what to do:
the map reference given you can go to the top of the county
page, click on "Convert Irish Grid References",
paste in the grid-reference, and read off the GPS co-ordinates
in blue at the bottom right of the resulting page.
then go to Google Earth, enter those co-ordinates, and you will
then get a satellite view. This will probably not be any more
use than a map, which can be employed for several sites.
example: Go to the iremap.htm
page. Click on County Clare on the West coast. You will
then get the County Clare list of monuments.
entry is: Ballaghaglash:
R 373 995
the R 373 995 map reference, go up the page to the "Convert
Irish Grid References". Click on it. Paste the reference
in the box, and you will get 53.04270 -8.93593.
that reference, open Google Earth, and paste the reference
into the search box. You will get this satellite picture.
will see, it is very little better than what you would see on
Sheet 52, except that you can zoom in and out. The tomb itself
is interesting only to enthusiasts who would be attracted by
the rare perforation mentioned in my description.
also go to www.maps.google.com
and paste in the same reference. The result is the second picture
if you download these pictures they
will be much larger
As you will now have gathered, it is much better to buy a map.
When I was researching for this website back in the 20th century,
I didn't even have proper maps of the Republic's 26 counties,
and the better (one-inch) Northern Ireland (six-county) maps
marked very few megaliths. I had to drive about, ask around,
fall into bogs
and in a few cases give up and try again
megalith-enthusiasts to want and be able to do a little work
for themselves. My website is not suitable for smartphones,
but aimed at those who enjoy the fun of searching for finding
megaliths in landscapes they would not otherwise experience.
