The wonderful entrance is aligned to the Lugnasa (= 1st August = harvest time) sunrise and the sun falls on the mighty horn stones opposite. Many ox bones were found here on excavation. This is thought to be associated with the 'Ox Horn New Moon' worship and could be related to the Spanish bull cults.
The center of the circle is composed of tightly packed yellow clay. Again, on excavation a new-moon crescent was found made of packed stones extending to the south from the Horn Stones and another packed stone figure of a two pronged staff lay off center in the circle - a representation of the staff of Crom Dubh.
