Ireland: Dolmen I

This was the first Dolmen of the trip. 
The Brownshill Dolmen. Not the most popular Dolmen. But these rocks are freakin' huge.
A dolmen is supposed to be some kind of portal tomb.
Woah. Did you feel something?

One would think you'd have enough of portals, donkey wheels and other whatnots from your day job to last you a lifetime :P :)

Ireland is lovely isnt it?

I really admire your ability to come up with things like patio - Paddy O'. Maybe some day I'll be that clever. Or not.

I told my kids I wanted a tomb like that or to be mummifed and set up in the livingroom with a 360 controller in my hand.

I'm going there in two weeks, I can't wait! I heard it's a wonderful country.

Indeed the celts were a spiritual/superstitious lot. But the upkeep on the tomb is just too much.

By seeing you close to these stones, I am surprised that "Obelix" was not mention neither in the post, nor in the comments :-)
