There is a prehistoric site in Co. Meath in the heartland of Ireland
It is said to be 5000 years old, constructed even before Stonehenge.
From the 19th of December until the 24th is the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere.
Before oil lamps, before gas lamps and before electric lighting,
People were worried that the light would not return.
So the building of Newgrange was constructed so carefully that for 17 minutes each day of the solstice,
the sun, or the light shone into the Newgrange.
That was their hope.
so if all that we have is hope...
There is no need to be ashamed.
