Aill na Mireann in County West Meath (Westmeath), Ireland
is one of the most important megaliths in all of Ireland.

Aill na Mireann, also known as the Catstone,
is the central most ancient geographic survey stone of Ireland,
at which the borders of the
four viz. five ancient Irish Kingdoms all met. Since West Meath
represents Cassiopeia, which has five major stars (four on some
stones), perhaps each of these stars represented a Kingdom.

Aill na Mireann is quite gigantic - about 15 feet high AND wide
and its general form is that of a large bear from the side and front view.
We managed to find three different photo angles of the megalith.

The MAIN (side, widest) VIEW above repesents Cassiopeia and Cepheus
but also includes the constellations of Draco, Perseus, Ursa Major,
as well as the North Ecliptic Pole and the North Celestial Pole.

The more narrow FRONT VIEW
represents the bear from the side as Hercules (see Killadeas)
and also includes the constellations of Boötes, Libra, Virgo, Lupus, Centaurus,
Crux, Vela, the False Cross, Corvus, Crater, Hydra and Leo.
The lower recessed part of the megalith in this view

is the line of the celestial equator
and the higher recessed area is the ecliptic,
with a carving of human being holding Leo,
signifying the Summer Solstice.
The celestial equator and ecliptic meet at the head of Scorpio
thus dating this megalith to ca. 3117 BC.

The BACK VIEW shows Vega and Lyra as a bird's head at the top,
along with the constellations of Cygnus, Aquila, Corona Australis,
Sagittarius, Scorpio, Serpens Caput, Corona Borealis, Norma, and
Triangulum Australe.

Empty areas of space with few or no stars
are represented by the figure of a tongue since Gaelic ODA "tongue"
is the homophonic comparable of Gaelic DOO "black", ie. "void of stars".

From this back view, the megalith is carved as a horse's head and askew jaw,
and the stone from this view also has a bearded human head carved on it.
All sides of the megalith have numerous other carved figures on them.

In terms of linguistic etymologies, Aill na Mireann means "stone of
the division" in Gaelic and since Latvian MERIEN means "measure" we
can presume Gaelic MIREANN and MERIEN are pretty close to the same
origin since old Irish NU-MIR meant "number" and Latvian NUO-MER
means "to measure out", i.e. "count" the length of something, which
gave rise to our modern word NUMBER, in German NUMMER. Latvian viz.
proto-Indo-Europaen MER- and NUO-MER "measure" is the root.

The same root is found in Ancient Pharaonic Egyptian MERKHET "plumb
line" used for astronomy and geodetics and I urge everyone to look at
Plumb
to understand its ancient use. MERKET in Indo-European e.g. Latvian

means to "aim (by measure)",
i.e. a perfect description for the Pharaonic Merkhet.

Cloghstuckagh shows Cassiopeia and Camelopardalis.
The megalith Cloghstuckagh in Westmeath County of Ireland
represents Camelopardalis as a bighorn sheep or stag, together
with a crown as Cassiopeia, though the figure is uncertain.

Using MacBain's Gaelic Dictionary as a source,
Clogh is surely Gaelic clach or clog "stone"
while Stoc is a "sheep horn" and
Agh is a "hind"
so that the Gaelic surely supports the above analysis of the megalith,
even though the markings are faint and difficult to reconstruct.
