Renewing the vows at the marriage stone!

At the eastern end of Cape Clear island are a couple of marriage stones that are about 2000 years old. The one with the hole in it is considered to be the female. Couples were thought to have clasped hands through the stones in marriage ceremonies. So we thought we may as well make the most of the location!
