Abstract:
Investigation of thirty circles in Cork and Kerry in the light of Thom's theories showed that there was a high degree of probability that a significant number, twelve, were orientated on important solar and lunar events. In addition, five circles are likely to have been orientated on the southern limits of the zodiac, and a further ten might have been directed to observation of stars during the period 1800-600 BC. While the circles were not strictly "observatories" they do appear to record an awareness of some of the simpler cycles of major heavenly bodies.
