The Giant's Ring

It's hard to believe this is so close to the hustle and bustle of Belfast located 2 miles from our house. It's a Neolithic site that historians believe is over 4,000 years old. It is the largest ceremonial enclosure in Ireland which is about 590 feet in diameter with 5 gaps around the edge. In the middle of the ring are five upright stones that support a large capstone. They believe this was a well-known place for ritual and other gatherings in ancient times. It could have been a sacred burial site.
