The Uragh Stone Circle


Before the Celts, one or more civilizations now lost to history inhabited Ireland.  They left their mark in the form of great passage tombs like Newgrange and Knowth, cemeteries like Carrowmore, and hundreds of stone circles all over Ireland and Europe.  The simple stone circle at Uragh, in the Gleninchaquin Valley of the isolated Beara Peninsula, may be the most beautiful of those latter relics in Ireland, at least in terms of its surroundings.
