101 Facts About Newgrange

1 Newgrange is one of the best examples in Ireland and in Western Europe, of a type of monument known to archaeologists as a passage-grave or passage-tomb.

2 It was constructed around 3200BC, according to the most reliable Carbon 14 dates available from archaeology. This makes it more than 600 years older than the Giza Pyramids in Egypt, and 1,000 years more ancient than Stonehenge.

 

Celtic Mythology Ireland

I think the main reason I am a Celtophile is because of the gorgeous Irish mythological tradition. My favourite series of Irish myths are contained within what is called The Ulster Cycle. Unfortunately, not too much Irish mythology has made its way onto the net. I have found one excellently done translation of the tale of MacDatho's Pig. Just recently, someone pointed out to me an online translation of Tain Bo Cualgne, The Cattle-Raid of Cooley, one of the real classics. A few more Celtic tales, less attractively displayed, are available via gopher.

Tir na nOg

Cyberspace is very, very old. The ancient Irish knew about it. They called it Tír na nÓg (The Land of Youth). Irish legends and myths tell of a land where mortal time was suspended and everyone was young and beautiful. Sounds like cyberspace to me!

Timeless Myths

"O Lady of the Fair Hair,
Sing to me of the fair ancient land.
Yours divine voice
Whispers the poetry of magic
that flow through the wind,
Like sweet-tasting water of the Boyne.

Celtic Mythology 1

Cuchulainn was an ancient Gaelic hero who was endowed with superhuman qualities. His name means 'The Hound of Culainn', but he was first called Setanta. His parents were Dechtire and Lugh Lamhfhada (Lugh of the Long Hand / Pronounce "Loo Lawvodda"). At the age of five he left home to join the Red Branch Knights, the Ulster army of the king Conor Mac Nessa. With him he took his hurley, his silver ball, his javelin and his spear. He would hit the silver ball with the hurley, leap forward and hit it a second time before it touched the ground, toss the javelin ahead and then the spear, run after them all, catch the ball and javelin with one hand and the spear with the other. When he reached the palace at Emain Macha (Armagh), he beat 150 boys at hurling and other games. Cuchulainn achieved his name at the age of seven when he killed the watch dog of Ulster belonging to Culainn', the smith and in return undertook to protect the kingdom of Ulster and its people himself.
