Up to 40 new structures have been found at Brú na Bóinne, near the famous Newgrange Neolithic site. Of the dozens of structures discovered, many are early Neolithic houses and Bronze Age burial tombs.
The jewel in the crown, however, is a structure aligned with the winter solstice, and the article quotes Dr. Steve Davis as saying it is “a key monument that is the largest and most complicated of its type in the world.”

Newgrange is by far the most significant ancient site in Ireland, and these new findings will make it one of the most important in the world.

Newgrange is significant because its long chamber tomb predates both Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids, of course if one is inclined to believe the traditional dates applied to these sites. The chamber tomb, dated to around 3200 BC, illuminates along the deep passage during the Winter Solstice.
