Portal Tomb


As you can see in some of the photos above there is now a rope around the small cairn with a little sign ironically asking people to respect the moument. There was some small scale building work going on near the gate to the tomb at the roadside last time I was here and I had the horrible feeling they were building a turnstile or something to 'manage' visitors. Turns out its going to be a small wall probably with a plaque and some info on it. Or maybe a stall for selling "Mum went to Poulnabrone and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt made by a six year old in the Far East" type stuff.

While I was here I met some genuine bone fide idiots: two were dancing around it on one leg in their bermuda shorts making 'pow wow wow wow' noises and another was asserting to the older folk that sacrificed animals were placed on top to please the sun god. Marvelous.
