Of kings and stone…

County Meath, Sunday, 31st July 2022…



All roads lead to Tara

as they say.


Or at least

all the roads in Ireland.



But like so much else

that we have considered

on this trip

what remains to us is

not even half of the story.



The ‘king stone’

about which so much is made

these days no longer stands

in its original position.



It originally stood in front

of the mound now named

for Niall’s Hostages

and acted as a gnomon for

the sunlight entering the mound

as we have seen with the monuments

so recently left in our wake back at the Boyne Valley.



Once, but now no longer

was a sentiment brought to mind

with increasing regularity as our

trip in the Emerald Isle neared its end.



If only stones could talk…
