A HUGE temple, once surrounded by about 300 huge posts made from an entire oak forest, was discovered directly beneath the Hill of Tara in Co Meath.
The Discovery Programme, set up under the auspices of the Heritage Council, carried out a survey of the Hill of Tara between 1992 and 1996 using sophisticated technology, the team of experts mapped what was underground. The work was slow and tedious because it yielded such a huge amount of information. What they uncovered eventually at the crown of the hill was a huge, oval-shaped monument measuring about 170 metres at its widest point. Around it are 300 post holes measuring two metres wide, indicating a massive human effort involved in the construction.
That will be a day worth celebrating!
