Kildaree

Kildaree, Williamstown, Co Galway is a small townland located on the R327 regional road 2.8 miles/4.4 km outside the small village of Williamstown in northeast County Galway, Ireland. The townland is situated on the Galway/Roscommon border to the west and is 4.5 miles/7.3 km from the village of Cloonfad in County Roscommon. To the north, Kildaree is bordered by a turlough known as Coolcam Lough; this is a temporary lake that dries up during the warmer summer months, a typical feature of counties Galway, Mayo and Clare in the West of Ireland. The townland is home to four ringforts, Iron Age remnants of a by-gone era. Folklore and superstition have surrounded these ringforts for centuries and they are referred to as fairy forts by older generations; the focal point of the townland is the cemetery from which the area gets its name. A church stood within the grounds of this graveyard but there is little evidence of its existence today; some foundations remain but they are hidden by growth and all that remains visible is a holy water font carved into a rock near what would once have been the entrance to the church.

It is this water font. Legend has it that two local kings once fought over ownership of the church lands and in the heat of battle they struck the water font several times with their swords, cutting a number of slices into the stone that are visible today. A more story is that this was a rejected piece of masonry from the construction of the church, recycled into a holy water font and the markings are in fact a stonemason’s failed attempt to chisel the stone to their requirements, but if nothing else, it is a testament to the vivid imagination and storytelling skills of locals in days gone by! In the time of Landlord ownership, Kildaree was once part of a larger swath of land owned by the Gore-Booth family who lived in Lissadell House in County Sligo. Constance Gore-Booth is today better known as Constance Markievicz, a close friend of W. B. Yeats and an iconic female figure involved in the early struggle and politics of the founding of the state, the Republic of Ireland. Today, the area has a small population of just 28 people and has only 10 houses within its boundaries.

Gyrometopus

Gyrometopus is an extinct genus from a well-known class of fossil marine arthropods, the trilobites. It lived during the Arenig stage of the Ordovician Period 479 to 472 million years ago; the central raised area is flattened and its front is expanded. There are 3 pairs of narrow furrows that define lateral lobes; the lip, the part of the doublure on the midline, is semicircular and the left and right sutures connect before reaching the inner margin of doublure. The articulate midlength part of the exoskeleton has 11 segments, which are divided by narrow pleural furrows; the margin of the tailshield is entire, the frontal two segments are well-defined by narrow pleural and interpleural furrows. Gyrometopus is found in the Lower Ordovician of Sweden. Gyrometopus is close to the common ancestor of the Phacopina. Gyrometopus is phacopid in appearance, but unlike in other Phacopina, a rostral plate is present, although it does not reach the inside of the cephalic doublure, as is customary in non-Phacopine trilobites
