Today we feature Drombeg stone circle in County Cork by Bryan Hanna. Also known as the Druid's Altar, this standing stone monument is one of the most visited megalithic sites in Ireland. Just 40 metres from this site there are two prehistoric stone walled huts leading to a fulacht fiadh cooking pit. Carbon dating traces settlement at this location back to 1100-800 BC. Bryan explains:
"This stone circle is located just east of Glandore in County Cork. It is probably Irelands most famous stone circle. It was used for ritual and ceremony during the Bronze Age."
The long history of civilisation at this site in Ireland is fascinating. Bryan has captured the location nicely in this black and white composition. This print is available from €35. You can browse or buy Bryan Hanna's prints here.
