Kilrush

Bullaun Stone

This huge, irregular shaped, conglomerate bullaun stone, is built into the base of a stone wall on the east side of a small road. It is over one metre in length. I was blown away by the size of the two bullauns, the largest is over 0.5 metres in diameter and c.0.2m deep, most of the second basin is now buried in the ground. A short walk further down the road will bring you to a gate and stile that leads to what maybe the former Parish Church of Kilrush. A medieval stone coffin stands upright in the graveyard, facing the west gable.

Situated: Travelling west on the N25 through Dungarvan turn right onto the R672. After c.400 metres take the first right turn onto a small road. The bullaun stone is built into the stone wall on your right.
