    Considered to be the oldest and most famous prehistoric site in all of Ireland, Newgrange is a tomb that was built from earth, wood, clay, and stone around 3100 BC, some 1000 years before the construction of the pyramids in Egypt. It consists of a long passage that leads to a cross-shaped chamber that was apparently used as a tomb, as it contains stone basins filled with cremated remains.

    Green Roofs, Heaven Help Us We don’t wish for more than this in life. Right down to the warm-nosed darling in the front yard. Just imagine smoke rolling out of the little stone chimney.. laughter swirling from the crumbling windows.. and a tumble of kids running around at dusk.

    The Cottiers Cabin. A cottier in Ireland was a person who rented a simple cabin and a small amount of land upon which to grow potatoes, oats and possibly flax. Usually, the land available was considered unprofitable for any other use. The cottier existed at subsistence level. During the early nineteenth century, the situation worsened considerably. After the Famine, the cottier class almost completely disappeared. by Garr8, via Flickr
