The Coffin Stone

The Coffin Stone

(by Gerry Moss, from IMC Newsletter Summer 2011)
"Most walkers frequenting the Wicklow hills will be familiar with The Coffin Stone, that cluster of boulders just above the saddle between Djouce and War Hill … The origin of The Coffin Stone’s proper name dates back to the dawn of history, to a time when those mystical, mighty hunter-warriors, Na Fianna, roamed across Erin’s green isle, in pursuit of deer, derring-do, dust-ups and damsels-in-distress … I feel it is only right that I should pass this story on, so that the legend be kept alive."
