Today we feature a stunning monochrome from Darren McLoughlin of Poulnabrone Dolmen in Co. Clare! This translates to "Hole of the Quern Stones". Located in the karst area of the Burren, this neolithic tomb is an impressive example of an Irish portal tomb. At least 16 adults and 6 children were buried under the monument, as discovered during an excavation in the late eighties. Darren explains:
"Poulnabrone Dolmen is one of the most famous archaeological sites of Ireland, dating to ca. 3500BC it sits on a high plateau in the Burren."
It's a sight used frequently by astronomers since there is no light pollution here. This print is available from €45. You can browse or buy Darren McLoughlin's prints here.
