Poulnabrone Dolmen

A muted pop of fill-flash was used to lift the shadows on the underside of the slab that caps the dolmen.

Poulnabrone is a dolmen (stone table) and portal tomb located in the Burren region of County Clare in Ireland. It’s around 5000 years old and had an oriental tourist lying on it when I arrived with my camera.

The name is said to mean “Hole of the Sorrows”, or, “Hole of the Quern Stones”. Human remains have been unearthed at the site along with artefacts such as an axe head, quartz crystals, pottery fragments and arrowheads.
