Grandad makes the case for Newgrange being the oldest lap dancing club in the world. At over 5,000 years old it’s an ancient structure and quite important today, it being the Winter Solstice, but I’m not quite convinced that it was a lap dancing club.
I mean, if the girls had to swing around a wooden pole wouldn’t they have got slivers of wood in their hands. Polished steel works much better, or so I’m told. I suppose after a while the ol’ pole would have been worn smooth and I’m sure things would have gone swimmingly well then.
I don’t know where he comes up with the idea of orgies there either. I mean, this is Ireland, like.
In light of the day that’s in it, I have a nice picture of An Fear Marbh off the Kerry coast at sunset on my photoblog. Feel free to wonder why a man is lying on his back in the Atlantic and how that relates to the above..

I stand by my argument. In those days, men were men, and women were men too. So a few splinters wouldn’t have put them off.
The orgies bit is a logical progression of the assumption that they suffered from far fewer hangups [but not necessarily hangovers] in those days. Don’t forget – this was long before Saint Paddy. They knew how to live..

On that final point, I took a few pictures of the harbour around Dun na nGall way back in 2005 and I recall there was what looked like a protusion sticking up from the Fear Marbh where I was standing. You can’t see it in this picture but from a nearby vantage point it’s well visible and just goes to show that the Irish have always had it…
