Oldcastle and Loughcrew

Mum and I brought the boys to Oldcastle to see my uncles and aunts and continue to foster their interest in ancient rocks.

But first some hurling, and a lovely roast beef dinner

We went to a very windy Loughcrew, an excellent network of passage tombs with astoundingly detailed petroglyphs.

Making a wish on the Hag’s Chair

Inside the main tomb the boys took in all the petroglyphs. We are both so happy they responded so well to this place. It has been special to me since childhood and it’s Papa’s favorite place in Ireland.

When we got back down off the hill the boys got some great jumps in with Eddie and Ciaran.
