Out-Standing Stones In Waterford

Today was a wonderful day of standings stones, ogham and cairns. County Waterford has so much to offer that I really don't know if I can get through it all.

One group of sites I visited amazed me. I once drove right past them, but the fog was so bad that I couldn't see them from the road ... just 50m away! The revisit was really worth it though. I was thoroughly disappointed during my revist to Drumlohan Ogham Stones (County Waterford), though. The protective fence around the site has fallen apart and it seems that rabbits are making a home right next to the souterrain.

For those of you that havve been wondering what I've been up to for the last couple of weeks I have just returned from Spain, where I visited the remains of the amazing Neolithic walled citadel at Los Milllares to the north of Almeria. I shall add a write up of that trip to my Beyond Our Shores section shortly. That reminds me that I still have to write up the details of the two great German sites I visited earlier in the year.
