Geocache Description:

The cache is not at these co-ordinates

This cache roadside and very wheelchair friendly. There is parking for a number of cars at the entrance to a disused quarry without disturbing anyone. It is in a fairly remote area with surrounding farmland and hills. Although it is remote I have discovered that muggles you haven't noticed can appear suddenly beside you, so some stealth is needed.


The cache contains a log and pencil.The main thing about the cache is its location. The view is a classic scene of our little volcanic plug, where St Patrick is said to have tended his flock of sheep. This is a view for photographers and painters, so pick a clear day. To get the co-ordinates for this cache you need to know the birth year of St Patrick (Ref. hyperhistory.net or irelandseye.com) and the height of Slemish in meters. Let the Slemish height numbers be A,B & C and the Birth Year numbers be D,E & F. The co-ordinates are:

N54* 51.[10D(E+F)]+3

W006* 08.10A(B+2C)

Now you've done the hard bit finding the cache is easy.
