Newgrange has been called a womb, a tomb a calendar, a temple, an observatory, a time machine and end an ancient mecca akin to a Stone Age Las Vegas!

Its purpose has long been the source of heated debate yet the site remains a cryptic porthole to the past, posing far more questions than the answers it provides.

'Hallowed Ground' will combine the uncommon with the unconventional to give a kaleidoscopic view of this one of the world's oldest and mysterious structures.
