Newgrange - a 5000 year old sacred site in Ireland. On the winter solstice the light from the rising sun shines directly into the chamber through the hole above the door, and illuminates one of the basins inside which used to contain cremated remains.

Loughcrew - County Meath. A megalithic site estimated to be 3300 years old (older then the great pyramids). A beam of light will go through the roof opening and light up the back wall (2nd last picture) on the spring and autumn equinox. On a good day you can see the Wicklow mountains and the hills of Kerry from this hill. There are a number of mythological stories involving witches to this site. There is still much we dont know compared to the sister solstice site - Newgrange. However these creations will always have mystery. The Celts always surprise me and I admire them greatly. Do visit if you can, it's a very special place and even if history isn't your thing; the sheep are pretty nice too !
