Not quite as old, but an interesting place nevertheless; the tower in Tramore with the Metalman on top can be seen from all over the bay, but can't be accessed by the public. It would be such a good tourist attraction, terrible shame.Someone was telling me the other day that he'd tried to visit the giant Iron Age Hill fort Dinas Dinorwig (North West Wales) recently, but the owner had chased him away.
If you 're not aware of the site, see here - http://youtu.be/PDF68mbe0F0
It's eady to understand the point of view of landowners not wanting loads of people on their land, but it seems a pity that this ancient - & historically important site is only viewable by him & his family.
Does Ireland have a law ensuring public access to sites like this? If not, should it have?
