Megalith Hunting On Dingle

Historically, we've been pretty good megalith hunters, and especially good since the advent of GPS. But this one stumped us, despite a good bit of physical effort.
In order to see the Kilmakedar Church, we
parked next to this interesting sign

"The Saints' Way," a pilgrimage path of yore;
normally we wouldn't be interested...

But this path promised seeing a carved megalith, a spiral, that
may have been a road marker for a much older path...





































Thus

So off we went; note fuschias

Looking back 

































































The upwards terrain

Vicki climbing one of many stiles, leading the
way

Looking toward the top of the ridge

Following the markers

It was at this point I began to think maybe  it was not a mere cold
that was affecting me, but maybe something more...several
succeeding days and nights of fever, chills, aches, coughing...
finally we went to a doctor in Sligo...to be continued

Toward the top of the ridge

Looking back again

More interesting stone structures

About as far as the camera and I got

The other side

No spiral megalith

But plenty of fuschias
