padodes on Two Rock Mountain, 2007

Walking very much off track the other day on the south-facing slope of Two Rock Mountain (Fairy Castle), above Glencullen, I quite literally stumbled upon a low granite rock with a curious sculpted engraving. According to my GPS reading, it lies at O 1686 2194 A, in an area to which the OSI map gives the name of Ballybrack. At first sight, it looks somewhat like the well-known Christogram that we see in our churches, the Greek Chi-Rho symbol, but that is hardly the case. It's surrounded by a circle and seems to show the letter P crossed with a transverse line and a shorter horizontal one ending in arrowheads, pointing east and west. Could it be a boundary marker? It's almost hidden in the heather, yet it is beautifully chiselled and the work appears to have been done in situ. POSTSCRIPT: looking at the rock more closely, I have come to the conclusion it's nothing more than an engraving of our common 'No Parking' sign. So much for erudite conjecture! Planted as it is in the middle of nowhere, this sign seems to be a rather elaborate joke. Linkback:

murd on Two Rock Mountain, 2007

just got "broad band" and low and behold i can now get the newsletter, before it just came up blank!
two thoughts on two rock which i have gone up almost every Monday for many years. firstly the challenge, it is as challenging as we want to make it. get a stopwatch and get up as quick as you can, then next time try to get up quicker! take a different rout down at an easy pace . set your own challenges.
secondly, i often think the people who climb 2 rock split into three categories, those who knock down the cairn(the mound of stones ) at the top, i.e. scatter the stones, sometimes putting a lot of effort into the destruction. those who never think about building or knocking the mound, and those who always replace knocked stones and rocks. the cairn will only be there as long as the three groups are in balance. so maybe we can monitor something profound about ourselves from viewing the "fairy castle". it can be viewed from a lot of Dublin Linkback:

Two Rock Fairie Castle walk
by brenno  13 May 2010
My thanks to Jackill for drawing my attention to the fact that the starting grid ref I included for the Two Rock-Fairie Castle walk would actually have had people beginning their walk in the middle of Dublin Bay. Mea culpa - all down to some clumsy keystroking. GRid ref has now been adjusted for anybody planning going on this very nice walk ideal for a bright summer evening. Linkback:

Often called 'Two Rock' - this is the closest peak to Dublin city. It makes a nice walk after work. Can be climbed in an hour from 'The Blue Light' Linkback:
