Here's your correspondent at a Stone Age alignment in the shadow of Mount Brandon, Ireland's second highest mountain.
The three standing stones are aligned on the summer solstice. Originally there were at least four and probably five stones in the alignment. This was almost certainly a sacrificial site.
The Irish name for this site, translated is, "the meadow of the colt." I have been here many times, but this was the first time that there actually was a colt there. And a very friendly one, too, who wanted to come up and nuzzle our faces. A nice welcome to a very old place by a new soul.
