The Irish Giant Man - the Irish Orion

From the Meath Chronicle today:

Two researchers have claimed that a huge, human-like depiction present in the road system straddling Meath and Louth could be the world's largest ground-based representation of the constellation of Orion.

They say that there is "tantalising evidence" that the vast `High
Man' figure may have been set down in prehistory and a five-year project of research into ancient myths and stories has revealed a significant astronomical knowledge among our ancient ancestors.
