These are some selected photographs from County Meath, Ireland. It is known as the “Royal County” as it was the seat of ancient high kings of Ireland. Photographs from two of the major historical sites are shown below. The first is the Hill of Tara, which was a sacral site associated with kingship rituals. The second is from Brú na Bóinne, which contains a number of prehistoric sites that predate the Egyptian pyramids. One of them is Newgrange, which is a passage tomb that was built over 5,000 years ago. The inner chamber is illuminated by the sun on the solstice, and there are lotteries to be inside during the solstice. All of these photographs were shot with a Sony Cybershot digital camera, and were edited in some way, such as to improve the appearance, etc. All photographs are copyrighted, and may not be used for commercial purposes or published without permission.
