Join us for the launch of The Sun Circles of Ireland by Jack Roberts, on Thursday the 7th of November at 6pm. The world famous Winter Solstice Sun-Rise Alignment at Newgrange is considered to be the finest example of Pre-Historic Astronomy in Ireland. At the stone circle of Drombeg the Winter Solstice Sun- Set is equally precise and it is but one of a group of over a hundred astronomically oriented circles. Ireland’s Sun Circles are the largest, most numerous, and most important group of stone circles in Europe. In this leading edge study carried out over several decades, we are guided on a journey of illumination through the stone circles of Ireland that sheds new light on the ancient megalithic mystery. Author and jewellery maker Jack Roberts, is well known as being the co-discoverer of the equinox allignment of Cairn T, Loughcrew, with Martin Brennan and has spent decades researching The Stone Circles of Ireland. He lives in Sligo, but has spent 30 years on and off studying the stone circles of the south of Ireland. Listen to Anthony Murphy of Mythic Ireland interview Jack Roberts about the new book here! The Stone Circles of Ireland is both written and beautifully illustrated by Jack Roberts, and costs €15.
