Achill Henge, Co. Mayo

Achill Henge TM8_0691

"Ireland has plenty of ancient settlements and monuments. But on Achill Island, off the far west coast - up a mountain and in the middle of a bog - sits a different kind of monument that locals are calling Achill-henge."

I was there on Saturday with some good friends to check it out. I have a feeling it will not age as well (or last as long) as the henge on the Salisbury plain.
