New Prehistoric Rock Art Discovered in Inishowen

Inishowen’s collection of ancient rock art hit the media headlines recently with the rediscovery of a major known site that had become overgrown and the discovery of two further sites. The Isle of Doagh in Inishowen is one of the most important sites in Western Europe for rock art dating back to at least 3,000 B.C. There are more than 40 known sites (the biggest collection in Ireland) with two new discoveries having been made close to the Isle recently. Most of the sites consist of cup-and-ring art but very little is known about their significance. It is speculated that in ancient times the Isle of Donagh may have been considered a sacred island. There will be more on this story soon in our blog:
