New Grange and Winter Solstice


The highlight of our trip to Ireland a few years ago was a visit to New Grange, the centuries old passage tomb. On December 21 - the Winter Solstice - the rising sun sends a shaft of light through that square window over the entrance down the passageway to the heart of the tomb to the world of darkness.
If you are interested you can read about it and then watch a LIVE CAM of the event tomorrow - probably middle of the night for us.
