2017 is the first year that the Winter Solstice in Newgrange is available to watch live online. Livestream is available here. No luck today - the 20th - as cloud has covered the whole area. Note: the weather lets you down for most time dependant events in Ireland, like meteor showers, BBQs, whale watching, fishing,camping, walking, hanging out the washing, etc. but you learn to not get your hopes up in Ireland, bring rain-gear and then be pleasantly surprised.
Yet I will try the last, I have another chance tomorrow (and if the 20th is a possible, then again the 22nd I'm assuming?).
