Some Hilltops and Then Home

After staying the night in Bushmills, County Antrim, I set off to revisit a few sites and take in a few new ones if I could. The weather was brilliant and there are a few sites I'd only been to in poor weather, so these were top of my list. I revisited the ruined passage tomb at West Torr (County Antrim) and walked back up to the lovely passage tomb at Carnanmore (County Antrim), before going to the court tomb at Lubitavish (see Ossian's Grave (County Antrim)). This took me very close to the very important axe factory on Tievebulliagh. It took me a while to find out who owned the land here and get permission to walk up the hill, so this is where my day ended.

Moving on ...
I'm writing this day up very late indeed. On 19th March many of you will have seen myself on RTEs Nationwide program. This website has been buzzing ever since. I really appreciate the comments I've been getting from lots and lots of people! The next step is to convince RTE that they would like to do a small series about Ireland's amazing prehistoric heritage that is a bit more serious and in depth than some of the recent attempts that have been made.

So, many thanks to everyone for you support and kind words! I feel re-invigorated and inspired to get out there and do more. I'm charging through Monu-Mental About Prehistoric Antrim at a good pace, so a summer publication date is looking likely.
