The megaliths of Poulnabrone and Gleninsheen in Clare County, Ireland
show stars centered on the constellation of Cancer as a spinning wheel
(together with bobbin, spindle, yarn and perhaps even loom),
just as the similar megalithic site, Spinster's Rock (Spinners Rock)
does in Dartmoor, Devon, in England in representing the constellation of Cancer.

This is a fantastic ancient "thematic" mesh showing clearly
that the people who put up the ancient megaliths
in various locations and countries were using the same system of stars.

Poulnabrone is one of the most popular megalithic tourist sites in
all of Ireland. The name Poulnabrone
allegedly comes from the Gaelic Poll na Bron meaning "hole of the quern"
and this alleged root fits perfectly for this megalithic site, putting
it at the center of the "spokes" formed by Cancer's stars. Moreover, since quern
means "hand-mill for milling grain" we see it also anciently could also
have meant spinning wheel, here driven by foot.

The Gleninsheen Dolmen in County Clare also represents the
spinning wheel of Cancer in the figures on the megaliths.

The name Glen-in-sheen may have a root SHEEN,
perhaps reatined in Gaelic SHAOL "loom" and SNEEUANE "web"
whence sneeuanee "cross-hairs" sneeuder "spinner"
sneeuder cadee "cotton-spinner" and sneeuit "spun".

This would appear to be similar to Latvian SHUJINA,
diminutive "SEWN". In fact, the English SEWN probably = SHEEN.

Near the Gleninsheen Dolmen, a 31 cm gold gorget (neck collar) was discovered in 1932.
It is known as the Gleninsheen Gorget or Collar and is now in the National Museum of Ireland

As noted and pictured at CelticJewel.com
"The Gleninsheen Gorget or the neck ornament is made from a solid
sheet of pure gold. Gorgets are unique to Ireland.... The
Gleninsheen Collar also has the distinction of being the logo of the
Federation of Jewellery Manufacturers of Ireland."

The megaliths of Kilmihil, known as the Liagans,
in Clare County, Ireland
show stars centered on the constellation of Cancer and Leo.

Above, the right megalith shows the stars of Cancer
hand the left megalith shows Leo Minor, Leo, and Hydra's Head.

The figure seems to be carved as a pregnant woman,
perhaps marking the Summer Solstice,
which woud put the Liagans in ear after the Neolithic period.

The county name Clare,
allegedly from Gaelic clar,
is said to mean "a level piece of land"
which, however, better fits Leo than Cancer.

Northern County Clare has a great concentration of so-called "wedge tombs"
which are defined as a narrowing stone chamber
which is then covered by a mound of earth
and having an entrance almost always pointed southwest.
