Prehistoric Ireland

Ireland, like Jersey, has an impressive array of prehistoric sites. I only saw a small but interesting smattering of these. I show just two Irish photos here. One is the Poulnabrone Tomb in the Burren region, dating bck to 3000BC. The other is the Hills of Tara, the seat of the Irish Kings. I had great delight being here as my surname means "Royal Bard". From what I have read, the Kings had to be a bit wary of the Bards, lest they ridiculed them with their words!
