Circles Mysterious monuments being built in Meath Circles
Mystery monument in Meath
This monument, which was obviously still under construction when the photo was taken, resembles Newgrange. It is located in County Meath within a relatively short distance of the Boyne Valley monuments. It is one of a number of monuments which are located close together in a group of fields in Meath. The purpose of these constructions is not clear, but perhaps they are part of some visitor attraction yet to be revealed to the public. If you know of their purpose, or can shed more light on these mysterious monuments, send us an email at mythicalireland (AT) eircom (DOT) net. There are more photos below.
Mysterious new monument in Meath
This one defies description because it has some sort of a moat, and the "island" may well be some sort of crannog. This "monument" was obviously also under construction at the time this photo was taken in the summer of 2006.
Mysterious passage-tomb like monument This is not the best photo in the world but the "monument" here looks like it has a passage and circular chamber, and is open, without a roof, like some of the denuded passage-cairns up on the hills of Loughcrew.
Mystery Knowth-like monument in Ireland
This one is somewhat like Knowth, in that it has a number of satellite mounds, and remember Knowth was found to have a large Iron Age ditch around it. However, this is a multivallate structure and is a bit more like one of the raths found on the Hill of Tara. It bears some resemblance also to Danestown Fort in County Meath. These photos were taken in the summer of 2006. Perhaps the monuments have been completed since then?
