This Morning Mary loves when visitors to Ireland who have not been here before come calling so that they can be taken to see the wonders of Newgrange! The workmanship on the enormous stones would be impressive in today's context but given that they were carried out more than 5,000 years ago they are phenomenal!
Mr. Masons shot is very effective in its capture of the fine detail of this stone on the inside of the tomb chamber.
