Prehistoric...

July 3, 2017

These amazing passage tombs are estimated to be over 5000 years old which makes them older than the Egyptian pyramids.  These prehistoric sacred sites are aligned in such a way so that the rays of the rising sun on the spring and autumnal equinoxes light up the tunnel leading to the heart of the mound.  The site has a commanding view.  Even with the rain and clouds last night I could still see the Wicklow/Dublin mountains (to the southeast), the Mournes (to the north east), and the mountains of Leitrim, Roscommon and Sligo (to the west).
