MEGALITHS in IRELAND DECIPHERED
LOUTH COUNTY
RATHIDDY LACERTA


Aughnacliffe


Only megaliths.co.uk megaliths.net and megaliths.de
are original megalithic decipherment sites.


The megalith Rathiddy in County Louth represents Lacerta but also
has the Swan Cygnus upon it.

The astronomical connection
is that Lacerta is on the east horizon at sunrise, just below Cygnus,
as Enif in Pegasus rises at the Winter Solstice ca. 3117 BC.

Rathiddy goes way back into Irish legend and one of the
great Irish heroes, Cuchulain (CuChulain viz. Cu Chulain).

Rathiddy is said to be "Cuchulain's Stone".
Now that is a curious thing, as we shall see.

The legend states that Cuchulain, mortally wounded in battle, tied
himself to this megalith for support, but his valor forbid any enemy
from approaching him until a raven would light on his shoulder,
indicating that he had passed away.

We find that this "raven" as a bird is found on his megalith indeed,
though we identify the carving as the head of a swan, which of course
is then on the "shoulder" of Lacerta and/or Enif, which here appears to be a
prairie dog, rather than the conventional lizard for Lacerta.

We must recall that Cuchulain took his name in legend
from killing the dog of Culann,
a dog which had attacked him.

It is interesting for the name Cuchulain
that CU is Gaelic for "dog", similar to Latvian
SUns "dog", so if CU was "dog" what was CHULAIN in CU-CHULAIN ?

We looked for "small" and found
Gaelic cuilean (=chulain?) meaning "whelp" in MacBain's online
etymological dictionary of (Scottish) Gaelic which is recommended to
everyone because of its many CORRECT references to Latvian,
Lithuanian and Old Prussian.

In any case, CU-CHULAIN was thus "a small dog",
either Lacerta and/or Enif in Pegasus at the Winter Solstice, ca. 3117 BC.
We see this dog pictured at Rathiddy as a prairie dog.
