Poulnabrone Dolmen (Hole of Sorrows) is a portal tomb in the Burren, Co Clare, Ireland dating back to the Neolithic period (4200-2900 bC). In 1985 a crack was discovered in one of the standing stones and had to be replaced. At the time they also excavated the site and found between 16 and 22 adults and 6 children buried beneath the monument. Personal items buried with those people were amongst others weapons, pottery and quartz crystals.
When I first travelled through the Burren you had to park on the narrow road, let the people off to see the monument and try to dodge all the other traffic. Now, I am not saying it's a major motorway, but still, it could get quite busy and tight. Fortunately, in the last few years they have built a proper parking place in one of the fields adjacent to the road, where there is enough parking for both cars and coaches!
