Next to the Irish fjord, I saw my first faerie tree up close. It’s thought that if you leave something behind (usually bits of clothing) on a faerie tree, your wish/hope/dream will be granted as it disappears.
Here’s another portal tomb in the Burren.
This one made Jonathan’s mom and I both think of the Stone Table.
Another stop on our tour of the Burren was the Poulnabrone Portal Tomb. No one knows who originally built portal tombs (aka dolmens, aka quoits), or for what purpose, but because human remains are usually found in or near the portal tombs, most people think that they served as ancient burial chambers.
