The Beaghmore Stone Circles on the south slopes of the Sperrin Mountains, in an area known as the Creggan, were discovered by accident during peat cutting in the 1940's. It took four years of excavation to remove a thick layer of protective peat and to uncover no less than 1269 stones. The Stone Circles were built in the Bronze Age around 1600 BCE. Field walls, fireplaces and flint tools found at the site are suggesting that the site was in use since 2900 BCE.
Inishbofin Island, Connemara, County Galway, Irleand ~ if you ever get the chance, you must go. It was one of the most fun and relaxing places I've been. We laid in this very field on a gorgeous day and enjoyed the feeling of being on our very own island.
