It doesn't sound stupid at all. It's certainly very spectacular. And I totally agree, if it turns people on to Ireland's prehistory generally then this is a very good thing. I guess it's a bit like stonehenge, it stands for something much bigger than itself, what it just looks like.

And also, there's me saying 'ooh didn't it look romantic' but that is only a preference of my own for how it looked at a certain moment in time. The builders of it would probably be appalled at the state of it like that, all falling down and bushes growing all over it. Maybe they'd be chuffed to see that someone thousands of years later wanted to do it up and make it look noble and smart and impressive. As that's probably? what they had in mind when they made it.

I should probably go and see the thing eh :)
