Potential rock carving

Another view of the erratic on Ballykildea with potential rock art on it. This side shows a linear mark that may be man made or natural. I will send on the coordinates and photos to the National Monuments service of the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, and will report back on any findings they make.

In a way it is gratifying that Ballykildea isn't overrun with walkers so the rock should remain undisturbed, although Coillte have a forest track nearby. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/774/comment/19886/
