There are hits of sophisticated megalithic workings close around Ireland's Blarney Castle! Right on the castle grounds, there are traces of large stone workings in a solid yellow(golden) sandstone like stone . The famousBlarney Stone shows signs of being made of the same hard yellow/gold sandstone.
The last time I was there, there were still stone "steps", seemingly cut into bedrock "sandstone" and disappearing down into the earth around the castle.
I have not yet found anyone who can tell about this ancient stonework. Work much older than old Blarney castle.
We have much to learn about a Stone Age which was grander and more sophisticated than the Stone Age many of us were taught about.
