Winter Solstice LIVE from Newgrange

Every winter solstice (21st December),  the shortest day of the year, something truly extraordinary occurs in the Boyne Valley. On this morning, and on the days around it, the rising sun shines across the river and up into the world famous Neolithic passage tomb at Newgrange. The long and narrow passage is perfectly aligned with the sunrise. This amazing feat of engineering was constructed around 3200BC, making it the oldest astronomically aligned structure in the world.
