Brú na Bóinne[edit]

Changed the wording of "hostel/mansion/palace on the Boyne" to "Palace on the Boyne" as its a more accurate rendering of the term. Fergananim I am a Doctor of Philosophy in Anthropology. I see it as an observatory to observe the Summer Solstice on June 21, and the Winter Solstice on December 21. I first visited the site in 1978 while doing field work for my doctorate. I have created a scaled model of it on my farm in upstate New York. It was first created prior to 3200 B.C.E, and is carbon dated as such Anyone, anywhere on the globe can create a scaled model of it,and I am publishing plans for people to do so. When the sun of December 21 creeps over the hill in your area, that will be the new year. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 100.4.152.139 (talk) 11:40, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

UNESCO World Heritage Sites[edit]

There are only TWO UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Ireland, not SIX. It is both confusing and deceptive to readers to place Dowth, Knowth, Newgrange and Townleyhall passage grave under the "World Heritage Sites in the Republic of Ireland" category. They are NOT individual world heritage sites but fit under Brú na Bóinne. Please remove the World Heritage categories from the bottom of these four pages. I think a good idea would be to leave links to the four pages in the Brú na Bóinne page. Jaw101ie 02:07, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

Boyne Valley[edit]

Can anyone answer me this question? Why does "Boyne Valley" redirect here? Bective Abbey is in the Boyne Valley, along with Kinnegad, Trim, Kells, Navan, Drogheda, Rath Cairn, Slane, etc. The Boyne Valley is a cultural area in the East of Ireland (predominantly in Meath) which includes the Brú na Bóinne complex, the Tara complex, Skryne, Bective Abbey, Trim Castle, Slane Hill, Cnoc Tlachtga, etc. and covers far more territory than indicated by Brú na Bóinne which covers less than 5% of County Meath (unlike the Boyne Valley which covers c. 75% of the county along with parts of other counties).--MacTire02 (talk) 08:05, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
