Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth are fascinating places. Really enjoyed this video of Anthony Murphy, which added extra texture to my appreciation of these sites which are so mysterious. It was interesting to hear the perspective of someone who has grown up in the Boyne Valley and who has studied the sites and the folklore and theories surrounding them.
