Clonmacnoise 2

Bullaun Stone

Clonmacnoise 2 (Bullaun Stone) by ryaner (Conspiracy theory alert!) There is a bullaun in there, and I reckon it's an important one, but maybe not to the Clonmacnoise authorities, hence its quite wilfull neglect.
Arch. Inventory of Offaly says "A large rough stone with two hollows…" My theory is that it's left like it is because it shows the pre-xtian provenance of such an important site. I made an attempt to clean it up but was beaten by the nettle roots. Ouch.
