"St Patrick's Chair", a roughly-circular outcrop of
rock, is covered with many cup-marks,
concentric rings, and maze-motifs over an area 3 metres across.
Twice a year in (in mid-April and mid-October)
the setting sun rolls down Croagh Patrick to the W, when observed from close by St Patrick's Chair
- whose direct view to Croagh Patrick is, unfortunately, obscured by farm buildings.
Two fine pictures by Ken Williams, taken on 17th April, 2009.
