Loughcrew Equinox Dawn March 2008
The Irish Office of Public Works will have staff in attendance at Cairn T at Loughcrew (about 40 km from Newgrange, Co. Meath, Ireland) for the equinox illumination on the mornings of March 20th, March 21st and March 22nd 2008 from 6.15am until 7.30am. Admission to the Chamber of Cairn T is free of charge. As the chamber is quite small, only 5 or 6 people can be inside at a time. Visitors are requested to stay inside for only a few minutes so that everyone can get a chance to visit. Please note that it is very important that visitors dress warmly and are wearing stout shoes. The climb to the top of Carnbane East is very steep and can be slippery after rain or on frosty mornings.
