A View of Sorrento Terrace and Dalkey Island From the Wishing Stone at Killiney Hill

scan0235I just recently learned that the stones that the men are standing on are called the Wishing Stone.  The stones came from nearby Dalkey Quarry and they are graduated, with a small stone on top big enough for one person to stand on.  You are supposed to walk around each level, progressing to the top, then stepping onto the last stone and making a wish!  The men are looking toward Sorrento Terrace and Dalkey Island.  The teenagers seem to congregate on Killiney Hill during the day and night these days.  I am going to have to check this out next time I am in Ireland!
