I had some friends over to stay with me for a few days and after a trip into Dublin to see the Book of Kells and to the National Museum we went to Knowth, Newgrange, Dowth and Monasterboice.
I wasn't feeling too well after walking around Knowth, so I went back and waited at the vistor centre while they went to Newgrange. We then went to Dowth and had a thistle-encroached picnic and then on to Monasterboice.
Today was special for me, because it was the first time I'd taken my grandson to an Irish monument! Imagine that! I had always thought he'd be at his first stone circle before he could crawl.
