TBH I am totally blown away by this. One can only hope that Ireland has the resources to benefit from these truly amazing finds.

Is there any chance of this amazing news being posted on another site that is not 'Twitchface'?

TIA.

As far as I know there was a tendency to burn ceremonial structures, looks like post holes left behind - incredible diameters
So, I don't do sums good, but is that another, another henge?

Don't know. We were wondering the same at the weekend while looking over the photos and articles...is it one new discovery (the double ringed one in middle) or is the other one at bottom also a new discovery?

Just to follow up re second circle, Mythical Ireland on their facebook page says...

''Some of you have been at pains to point out the second circle visible in some of my aerial images of the new discovery. This second circle is, in fact, a previously designated enclosure/henge which surrounds a passage-tomb, and is designated site LP2 in the 2010 INSTAR report.''

So, it is a previously known henge found in 2010.

So what it is it we're really looking at here?

Is it like a recumbent stone circle dedicated to the moon?
I say like as it could have been made of timber.

But it's interesting that the features in the 3 circles all line up.

Ah! So the linear feature in the middle of it may be an excavation trench I suppose.

Sorry to go off topic with this. Might go to Newgrange tomorrow but see that its a booked out online but a limited number of walk ins are available. Would I get in if we arrived at around 11:00am or is it a waste of time... Thanks

Slightly off topic but related
I was browsing Google maps there the weekend and they've updated their maps from during the dry spell
Lots of oddities showing up from the location of old ditches/boundaries to circular formations similar to above.
