Fabulous morning especially after all the rain yesterday and during the night. Beautiful photos. ..

Great photos look like a great morning. Hope Saturday morning is as good for our Camera Club field trip

Hello from California. So wish I was there to celebrate with you.

 

 

Loughcrew Passage Tombs

A short walk from our centre will bring you to Loughcrew’s Ancient Passage Tombs. These tombs are over 5,000 years old which makes them older than Newgrange. Hear about the legend of the witch who is credited for these tombs, sit on her throne and take in the breath-taking scenery from the Royal County’s highest point.

Upon entering the tomb you will see some amazing carvings all along the passage. Follow the path of the Equinox's sunlight to see the spectacular carved stone that the sun strikes twice a year. Look up at the corbeled roof that has kept this structure intact for thousands of year as you gaze at the mysterious art that our ancestors worked immensely to create.

Return to the warmth of Nelly's Kitchen Café where you can sip on our Bewley’s coffee and a homemade scone. Our children’s playground is located beside the courtyard where you can relax while the children play.
