Trooperstown II (Bullaun Stone) — Fieldnotes

In a steeply sloping field that leads to the top of Trooperstown Hill, the stone slopes with the field and the basin is placed near the top. The basin is relatively small, dry today, but when it fills with water, it can be seen that it overflows and has caused a channel to erode away on the lower spine of the rock. ryaner Posted by ryaner

Trooperstown (Bullaun Stone) — Fieldnotes

Earthfast bullaun in the so-called 'Church-field' in Trooperstown, one deep basin and one shallow. This is another of the prayer-type stones, probably with folklore attached that the basins are the impressions of a saint's knees, made while he prayed. Maybe he had one leg shorter than the other, but that's only speculation. ryaner Posted by ryaner
