Poulnabrone dolmen, Ireland


Thought I'd share this -- from my one and only visit to Poulnabrone, many years ago.  Nice dolmen -- sorry about my lack of respect, for those who are appalled at such behaviour.......

Awaiting to be whisked off with the faeries?
Could be worse you could have been mooning

Yes, strange things happen at cromlechs / dolmens. There are reputed to be fairies dancing in the moonlight at Pentre Ifan -- never seen them personally. One time when I went there at dusk I encountered a very strange fellow sitting under the capstone, playing his didgeridoo......... I'm still not sure whether that really did happen, or whether it was all a dream.....

Didgeridoo, or digeridoon't?

There WERE wallabies in the Peak District a while ago, so you never know......perhaps an Australasian connection/ tunnel?

Verne - esque journey to the centre of the earth...and beyond?? You never know....I'm sure Prof Tim "Challenger" Darvill would agree!

Yes I think they died out in one of the harsh winters a few years ago. They lived near Matlock- hell hole of the Peaks (I did my post grad research on Masson Hill, Matlock)It may be lovely now (doubt it-as is now full of antique shoppes)Matlock not Masson Hill that I now a reserve and all my exposures are covered and landscaped -cannot be second guessed.
They also lived near Leek The Roaches??
