Poulnabrone Dolmen

The Burren, County Clare, Ireland

Poulnabrone dolmen (Poll na mBrón in Irish, meaning "hole of the quern stones" (bró in Irish)) is a portal tomb - one of approximately 174 in Ireland - located in the Burren, County Clare, Ireland. It dates back to the Neolithic period, probably between 4200 BC and 2900 BC. It is situated 8 km (5 miles) south of Ballyvaughan, 9.6 km (6 miles) north-west of Kilnaboy. It was raining pretty hard when I shot this. I was hoping to shoot it in better light but did not get the chance.

These are fascinating and so wide spread across NW Europe. Actually in my opinion this is very good light for this. Brings out the details and textures well. "V"

A superb dolmen, beautifully captured ! V.
I'm always amazed by those stones and intrigued by the megalithic civilization...
Dolmen is a Breton word : "Dol" means "table" and "Men", stone...

So far away, but some Ancestors!...
