South Antrim

I really do need to start seeing sites in Antrim. That is, after all, the county my next book will be covering. The problem today was that I didn't want to be home late, so I settled for a list of sites in the south of the county, between the cities of Belfast and Antrim to be precise. As usual it was a day of mixed fortunes. A large number of sites were no longer there or were ruined beyond recognition, but one in particular, Browndod court tomb, was superb and it alone made the trip worthwhile.

I made the effort to go back to Ballylumford to take some pictures (after I deleted the photos from my cammera that I took on my first visit) and also popped in to see one of the saddest bullaun stones I have ever seen.

If things go to plan I should have the proof of Monu-Mental About Prehistoric Waterford back from the publishers this week. We are aiming for a late November release, so put it on your Christmas lists!
