The Brugh na Boyne, (a.k.a. Brugh na Boine, Newgrange), is a Megalithic passage tomb located near the centre of Ireland in Co. Meath. Tradition associates the Brugh with the Dagda, his wife Boand, and his son Angus Og.

Built at a bend in the Boyne River, Newgrange is one of several sacred complexes in a vast sacred landscape. The Brugh na Boyne was constructed around 3100 BCE, which makes it about 1000 years older then the Stonehenge trilithons and 500 years older then the Great Pyramid of Giza.

The huge circular mound is 76m (250ft) in diameter and 12m (40ft) high. It covers an entire acre. Within the mound is a long passage culminating in a cross-shaped chamber. An opening above the entrance allows the rays of the rising sun to penetrate the inner chamber at sunrise on the Winter Solstice.

The great mound is surrounded by 97 kerbstones, of which 31 are decorated in geometric designs, including the triple spiral. The triple spiral or triskele, is also carved on stones within the chamber.

Cremated remains of only five people were found in the mound during excavation. This has led to some controversy as to whether or not the mound was used for permanent interments. There is speculation that the remains whould have been placed in the chamber just prior to a Winter Solstice ritual and removed for permanent burial afterwards.

Today, only a limited number of people are allowed in the chamber on the Winter Solstice to witness the entry of the sun into the Brugh na Boyne. These people are selected by lottery, which anyone may enter.
