Dranagh Rock Art

I was fortunate enough today to run into the man who found the original piece of Dranagh Rock Art that now is displayed in the museum in St Mullins. Michael Clarke was changing a wheel on his jeep when I called in to ask about a second piece that exists locally.

He was kind enough to leave the jeep and led me in his car to the site of the second rock. Unfortunately at this stage it was getting dark so my photos doesn’t do it justice.I will have to call another day.

After he discovered the first rock, his father took a photo to the National Museum and they sent some experts down to inspect. Suitably impressed they told him it was likely that there were more examples dotted around in the stone walls of the area. Lo and behold but didn’t he find this second one in 2008.
