Faughart (Bullaun Stone) on The Modern Antiquarian, the UK & Ireland's most popular megalithic community website. 5 images, 1 fieldnote, plus information on many more ancient sites nearby and across the UK & Ireland.
I visited this site and Proleek Dolmen after a wedding in Ballymascalon Hotel (the Dolmen is actually to the rear of the golf course of the hotel).
I remember having read about it in an edition of Archaeology Ireland and decided to have a quick look the morning after the wedding.
I wish I had done a bit more research on it as after reading Fourwinds fine fieldnotes on the site, I missed out on a possible basin stone of a passage tomb.
Since Fourwinds visit in 2003, they have put up an bit of an information board which gives the various actions of the "pattern" that are to be performed.
There is one double bullaun know as the "Knee stone" and one shallow single bullaun know at the "Head stone".
The shrine itself is just off the M1 motorway and has a fine big car-park.
