A Bronze Age Stone Circle in Drombeg, Ireland

October 9.

We spent the day in County Cork driving from Skibbereen around to fishing villages of Baltimore and Union Hall, and then onto Kinsale via the Drombeg Stone Circle and the Timoleague Friary Ruins

Drombeg is a site containing a stone circle dating from 1100 to 800 BC (late Bronze Age) in which are the cremated remains of a youth.
