Clara Mass Rock

 

This Mass Rock is situated in the townland of Ballinough and is signposted from the road. Mass is said annually at this Mass Rock which is maintained by Robert Holmes. He hopes to erect a plaque at the site shortly to celebrate its history and heritage.

Dunkerrin Mass Rock

This Mass Rock is in the townland of Gurteenshingaun and is difficult to find as it is approximately 2km into the Coilte Plantation. Mass is celebrated annually t the site which was re-discovered in 2014.

 

Directions are as follows: in Dunkerrin take the road to Templemore for about 3km. At the first small cross roads (there’s a sign saying take a left to Rathnavogue Cemetery) take a right. Drive for c.500 meters and go straight through next cross roads (taking care to stop at stop sign before progressing).

 

Drive for approximately 2 km on this twisty, hilly, and narrow road, and after passing a farmers dwelling close to road on the right, turn right into the Coilte Plantation which is about 200m further on. Keep on the main road (it’s rough but well maintained) for another 2km.

The road continues on straight but don’t go there as you could get lost and it’s not as well maintained. Instead, take another right here, and there should be a sign here saying Mass Rock. 500 meters down this road you’ll see the Mass Rock (this part of the road ends at the Rock).

 

My sincere thanks to Seamus Doherty for the information, direction and photographs of this site.
