Newgrange in Donore (Meath)
Newgrange is an ancient passage tomb located near the River Boyne in County Meath, Ireland. Dating back over 5,000 years, it is older than both Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids of Giza. The site was constructed during the Neolithic period, and it is believed to have served as a burial site for important members of the community. The tomb is especially famous for its alignment with the winter solstice, during which the rising sun illuminates the inner chamber for a brief period. The site has been carefully restored and preserved, and visitors can take guided tours to learn more about its history and significance. For those interested in ancient history and archaeology, Newgrange is an excellent destination to visit while in Donore or nearby areas.
