Study Visit to Newgrange on 28th April 2011

A long journey to see grassy hills, stones with carved shapes and a light tunnel, what was it all about wondered some of our group. The guides at Newgrange and Knowth suggested some possible reasons why there was a building boom 6 thousand years ago in the Boyne Valley. On the journey home there were plenty of ideas discussed. One knowledgeable guest has offered to take us all to the less famous but “most impressive Ballynoe Stone Circle” near Downpatrick. Feedback was positive and encouraging, “interesting day”,  “ met lovely people and made new friends”,  “a memorable trip”,  “good company”,  “well organised”,  “a fabulous day-unforgettable. Thank you.
