Al describes the images: I'm not really a scholar of the subject so I don't what I can say about it that hasn't been said by more learned people. Being there was a very uplifting and emotional experience for me. It was definitely one of the highlights of my trip.
(Below) The view from the northern side of the entrance looking towards the NNW.
Detail of one of the large stones in the southwestern quadrant. Taken from inside the circle facing SSW.
This strange object (below) is located between the ring stones at the North end of the circle. It looked a little out of place so I took the picture. Burl makes no mention of it. I picked up a booklet called The Illustrated Guide to Lough Gur, Co. Limerick (1981) by M.J. & C. O'Kelly and they make no mention of it.
Circle C lies about 120m north of the Grange circle. There was a barbed wire fence and I didn't want to risk trespassing without getting some kind of permission.
