Bet you didn’t know that Ireland and it’s wealth of ancient sites and historical landmarks are really much older than you think.
For instance, Newgrange, located in County Meath, is older than Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids of Giza. Built around 3200 BCE, Newgrange is a prehistoric monument that consists of a large circular mound with a passageway and chambers inside. What makes it particularly intriguing is its alignment with the winter solstice sunrise, allowing sunlight to illuminate the interior of the tomb on the shortest day of the year. This remarkable feat of ancient engineering and astronomical knowledge showcases the rich cultural and historical heritage of Ireland.
I am so excited for this one. I’ve never been to Ireland.
