Fourknocks by Navanna Fourknocks by Navanna
Fourknocks is a Passage Chamber Tomb built in Ireland about 5000 years ago.

The name Fourknocks comes from the Irish 'Fuair Cnocs' which means 'The Cold Hills'. It is significant to the mystical Newgrange because it is aligned with the line of Winter Solstice sunrise from Newgrange.

Looks like a cross between a Hobbit hole and the tomb of Jesus (which he defeated)

I literally live 100 meters away from Fourknocks, been inside countless times!
Fourknocks is a lot older than Newgrange, but Newgrange is so much more popular, which is weird...
Super pic!

Oh, how lucky you are :)
Yes, in fact I would rather see Fourknocks...
But I suppose Newgrange is more popular because of it's size and complexity.
Thanks!
