Wicklow has been the setting for many Hollywood movies over the years. But did you know a secret Jurrasic World short was filmed on the Powerscourt Estate last year!
The eight-minute short film, entitled Battle at Big Rock, is set in the Jurassic World universe and features a giant animatronic dinosaur! The location was said to be chosen because it bears a striking resemblance to the national parks in Northern California.
The upcoming Jurassic World 3 movie is released in June 2021. Click through the link to view "Battle at Big Rock" - it's fantastic, and scarey! ... See MoreSee Less
Rathgall Hillfort, in South #Wicklow is a special place and this aerial shot by Mark Molloy-Photography certainly show its full beauty.
Rathgall Hillfort, on the edge of a ridge is an imposing monument covering a total area of 18 acres. It features four concentric stone walls, the inner circle measuring 15 metres in width.
Excavations, started in 1969, revealed important evidence of Late Bronze Age activity at Rathgall, dating to 800BC. Evidence of a house was discovered in the inner stone circle with the second and third ramparts forming the main defensive walls.
Extensive metal workshop areas were uncovered in the inner and outer circles for casting large quantities of bronze weapons and tools. Other finds included glass, bronze and stone objects, clay moulds, gold and glass beads and other artefacts.
