Summer Solstice in #Wicklow 🌄 This is the longest day of the year and a day where traditionally our ancient ancestors would have celebrated the sun for the life it brought.

Did you know Athgreany Stone Circle, situated near Hollywood #wicklow, is aligned to the setting of the sun during the Solstice? The Irish name achadh na gréine translates as Field of the Sun!

This National Monument dates from the Bronze Age and would have acted as a megalithic calendar. The Sun's shadows, as they aligned with the standing stones, would have been observed by our ancestors.

The site is also know as the Piper's Stones. Local folklore tells us that the outlying stone is the piper and the stone circle his dancers, who were all petrified in stone for violating the Sabbath.
