Newgrange

Newgrange is an ancient mound in County Meath. It dates back to approx.. 3000 BC, which makes it even older than the pyramids. There is a passage way which leads to the chamber inside. On the morning of the winter solstice, the light enters the chamber. Only fifty people are chosen each year to enter on these days!
