MEGALITHS in IRELAND DECIPHERED
CAVAN COUNTY DRACO
BURREN MEGALITHS

Burren Cavan


The megaliths of
Burren
in Cavan County, Ireland

(not to be confused with several other sits called Burren in other counties)

show a series of capstones
which form the shape of Draco as the serpent of heaven
below which we find markings for the constellations of
Aquila, Cygnus, Lyra, Ophiuchus, Hercules, Corona Borealis,
Serpens Caput, Boötes, Coma Berenices and Virgo.

The use of quite square and jagged rocks
to show the flowing form of the serpent-like Draco
is an artistic achievement of some skill.

Burren also seems to show evidence
of several other figures on the stones.

The name of the county, Cavan,
is said in Gaelic to derive from Cabhánn’ meaning "hollow"
and this may have something to do with the Shannon Pot,
a so-called "karstic pothole"
which is the source of Ireland's longerst river,
the Shannon.
Burren may thus be related to Gaelic burn "water, spring water".

The term karstic comes from karst,
a word applied to an irregular area of limestone
which is marked by underground streams, sinkholes, fissures and caverns.

To see a nice list of the origin of the names of the counties of Ireland
see
http://homepage.tinet.ie/~cronews/geog/county/coorig.html

The names of the modern counties surely contain ancient elements,
though the idea of an administrative "county"
is of course quite modern as such.
County Cavan, e.g. allegedly had a more ancient name,
Breffni,
but there are no Gaelic terms of that nature,
lest Breffni be related to Burren.
