The 12th century Book of Invasions maintains that Ireland was first occupied by a magical people from the north of Europe, known as the Tuatha de Danaan, Children of the Sun Goddess Dana.Some believe these were masters of the occult, educated in the great, mysterious cities of Falias, Gorias, Murias and Finias.The ancients understood nature as we have failed to do.For them, the Sun dictated Seasons and the Seasons dictated Life. The only thing we can say with any certainty is that the architects of the megalithic structures of Ireland had a profound understanding of both mathematics and astronomy.The Pennefather line continued to occupy the main house until the death of Harold Freese-Pennefather in 1962.A German and a Dutchman subsequently took on the property.These magnificent structures continue to baffle the broadest of archaeological minds to the present day.How can we relate to the ancient cairns and perfect stone circles on mountain tops?
