Anyone else with experience? From what I can tell they also have Solstice ceremonies there in what looks to be a much more intimate setting than Stonehenge... has anyone been to one of these?
I'm incredibly interested as to what effect the light plays on the white quartz which lines the face of Newgrange.

It predates Egypt according to MAINSTREAM Egyptology, and that may be true, but equally valid a theory is that the Egyptian pyramids (particularly the Great Pyramid Khufu) are far older. Both Giza and Baalbek (Lebanon) show far more impressive stonework than anything in Europe/Britain/Ireland - possibly indicative of greater methodology/technology before the devolution that's been in place since sometime before known history.

Well the black supremacist claim Africans were in Ireland and did that. Bull#.
The ufo crowd claims aliens landed and educated the people. Also bull#.
Here we have the simple fact that a group of people on the edge of the known world, if left to their own, will begin to develop.
Bare in mind Ireland is pretty peaceful, isolated, and simple. The perfect place for a civilization to begin.
Thunk about it. All the great civs developed in places isolated, cut off, and with resources readily available.
The only question is what did these people in.
