by 300 white crosses in memory of men who in 1798 were hanged both
sides of Soldier’s Hill, a ceremony took place at Lismullin
February 3rd. 2008, perhaps the first in thousands of years.
On Thursday February 21st. the Henge perimeter was defined from NGC co ordinates provided by the NRA with the help of an independent archeologist. This man previously worked for the NRA but left them to became a protestor (protector of Irish Archeology) after seeing the lack of concern being shown by some NRA employees and archeologists.
The original post holes of the Henge are still below the surface and only filled in with distinctive black coarse sand (imported), so a reconstruction of the Henge in it's exact location was envisaged. Below the time line of the henge are field ditches that are reminiscent of the Ceide Fields in Co. Mayo, some 5,000 years old.
Alternating with the image of the ceremony is a digital reconstruction of 2/3 of the henge. 1/3 is on privately owned land and has not been excavated. We had hope that some day, a complete reconstruction would become a reality.
