Site Notes

Macalister/1945, 219, note 1: `So Brash, but there is no townland of this name [Gortmaccaree]. I have endeavoured, with indifferent succeess, to follow on the six-inch Ordinance map a description of the route by which Windele reached this stone, as set forth in his notebook, R.I.A. 12 K 28, pp. 164 ff. His compass-bearings are quite untrustworthy. Brash must have derived the name `Gortmaccaree' from Windele, for it appears on the pages quoted: after a consideration of the topography I have come to the tentative conclusion that it is a mistake for Gortacreenteen, a townland which appears in the region indicated, on O.S. sheet 103'.

Macalister/1945, 219: `Found on the north side of a carn surrounded by three concentric rings of stones'.
