We started out the day by heading to Newgrange which was another huge passage tomb which sits in the Boyne Valley. We took a guided tour which was amazing just due to the sheer amount of information that they have learned about the tomb. The most amazing thing to me was there was a several year wait (at least in 2003) to view the winter solstice from inside the tomb. I am still amazed by the detailed carvings on the standing stone that blocked the door to the passage.
After we had toured Newgrange we headed out to the car only to find that it wouldn't start. Now the car only had 8,338 miles on it and although I had heard "left, get over to the left, you're on the wrong side of the road" about 500 times or so in the previous 1 1/2 days and had continually bumped the left rear tire off of every curb at every left hand turn we had made, I didn't think that I had broken the car.
