Megaliths in IRELAND Deciphered

Ireland Sky Map

The above map of Ireland shows important megalithic sites of Ireland
which have been deciphered by Andis Kaulins.

To view these decipherments please click on the map (not active for all browsers) or on the county links in the left margin or megalithic site links in the right margin.

As discovered by Andis Kaulins, the counties of Ireland,
- that is, Ancient Eire -
reflect ancient regional borders
which were fixed in Ireland by megalithic astronomy and geodetics
in an era that megaliths.co.uk calculates to be around 3117 BC.

As can be seen from the map above,
ancient regions were surveyed and marked by megaliths
- much as we place surveyors "cornerstones" underground today -
and,
since astronomy was used for triangulation and orientation,
the resulting regions or later similarly bordered modern "counties"
represented groups of stars (constellations) of the heavens.

These "land parcels" have been largely retained into our modern age.
though their exact size and shape will surely have changed some in the interim.

Nevertheless, using the megalithic sites of Ireland
as the "ancient surveying record"
it will surely be possible ultimately
to reconstruct the ancient borders with great accuracy.

Megaliths.co.uk has not yet deciphered enough sites
to reconstruct these borders as they once were,
but we can with certainty form a general map as above.

IRISH COUNTIES
STELLAR CONSTELLATIONS

As the map shows,
there are the following general identities of counties and constellations
(with major megalithic sites in parentheses),
though of course there are overlaps
and many of the ancient counties were differently marked.
Nevertheless, the basics are still present:


Kerry = Vela (Derrynablaha), Cork =Carina (Ballybane, Uragh = the Argo, which consists of both Vela and Carina), Waterford = Eridanus (Knockeen Dolmen, Coumaraglin), Wexford = Cetus (Ballyboher), Limerick = the Hole in the Milky Way to the left of Canis Major (Lough Gur), Tipperary = Orion (Lisbunny, Timoney), Kilkenny = Taurus and the Hyades (Ballylowra, Ballyvatheen), Carlow = the Pleiades (Aghada, Ardristan), Wicklow = Aries and Triangulum (Baltynanima), Kildare = Perseus (Punchestown), Offaly = Gemini and Laois = Auriga (Clonkeen), Clare = Cancer (Poulnabrone, Gleninsheen, Liagans at Kilmihill), Galway = Leo and Hydra (Ballynacloghy), West Meath (Westmeath) = Camelopardalis and Cassiopeia (Cloghstuckagh, Aill na Mireann - the Catstone), Meath = Cepheus, Center of Heaven, North Ecliptic Pole, North Celestial Pole, Pole Star (Newgrange, Knowth, Tara, Loughcrew, Mullagharoy), Dublin = Andromeda (Ballyedmonduff), Cavan = Draco (Burren), Louth = Lacerta (Rathiddy), Longford = Ursa Minor (Aughnacliffe), Roscommon = Ursa Major (Skregg, Rath Cruathan), Leitrim = Boötes (Fenagh Beg), Mayo = bottom of Hydra, Corvus, Crater, Centaurus and Crux (Ceide Fields, Boheh), Sligo = Virgo (Creevykeel, Carrowmore, Carrowkeel), Fermanagh = Hercules (Killadeas), Monaghan = Cygnus (Drumnart), Armagh = Aquila (Annaghmare, Ballykeel), Down = Capricorn (Barnmeen), Tyrone = Ophiuchus, Serpens Caput (Beaghmore), Derry and Antrim = Sagittarius (Tirnony, Tireighter).

It should also be noted that there are duplications, such as Punchestown, because of the fact that the original survey was made ca. 3117 BC, but, due to precession, the stellar orientation changed. Accordingly, similar to e.g. Germany, where there are, e.g. two stones for Hydra, the eldest and largest being the Gollenstein (Gollenstone) at Blieskastel, so also in Ireland there are two stones for Perseus, easily distinguished as to era, and differently placed in terms of location.

Part of the job to be done in the future is to differentiate the Neolithic sites ca. 3117 BC
from those which are later in time.
