NEWGRANGE

Ireland’s Blue Book

Newgrange is a prehistoric monument in County Meath, Ireland. It is a remarkable passage tomb built during the Neolithic period, around 3200 BC, making it older than the Egyptian pyramids.

Newgrange is best known for the illumination of its chamber and passage during the Winter Solstice. From December 19th to the 23rd, a narrow beam of light penetrates the roof and fills the chamber with extraordinary light. Thousands of people enter an annual lottery to get the chance to experience the other worldly event.
