Ken, I've seen the Haroldstown dolmen described as one of the most attractive in Ireland. This must be one of the best images of it - I love the reflected blue on the snow; very peaceful. tjj Posted by tjj

Really fantastic. This is my favourite site and that photo has just confirmed that for me. I would love to see it in the snow...alas that is not to be at the moment!

Thanks for posting that picture.

Wow, wasn't expecting such nice comments, thanks all :) This portal tomb is near Tullow which was one of the very worst affected areas in the 'snow crisis' but the scenery is just stunning, worth the slippery drive! CianMcLiam Posted by CianMcLiam

I wish I had a car that I felt even remotely secure about driving in the snow. I am itching to get out there and take some snowy pictures. Great photo Ken. FourWinds Posted by FourWinds

Think I should start a thread called 'megalithic martyrs' just in case you or Postman end up being found frozen clutching a stone somewhere in the wilds of Ireland or Wales. It is a stunner though ;) moss Posted by moss
