Lough Gur is a massive complex of neolithic stone circles and settlements. It was obviously an important place and is well worth exploring.
The stone circles are well preserved and are built on significant geographical locations. The general view of historians is that these places are astronomical observatories or places of ritualistic sacrifice, well it sounds exciting but that is not our view at all.
There is also an interesting Wedge Tomb located down one of the lanes near to the main circle. It has a quaint feeling and is an atmospheric place. There is a story that an old woman lived in the tomb in recent history, the local people developed a rumour that she had hidden some articles of value there. When she died they excavated the whole area looking for the "treasure", of course they found nothing.
Spirits Of Lough Gur
Although we did not see or hear anything notable the spirit of the woman who lived here can still be felt in this place, her presence is quite strong. The stronger spirit in this area is the spirit of greed and is still alive and well and you wont need to be a psychic sensitive to pick up on it. The spirit which invokes this irrational greed bears all of the hallmarks of a creature from the underworld who delight in confusing men with fools gold, legends are full of these stories.
Creatures of the underworld are often active in these types of places because doorways between different levels of reality have been opened there.
