Alien Hotspot; Newgrange Is a Haven for Extra-Terrestrials Says UFO Buff
Byline: CAROLINE JAGO
IT IS Ireland's most ancient burial site and, built more than 5,000 years ago, it even pre-dates the pyramids.
Many different theories exist about it's origins and the intelligence that stoneage man possessed to construct such a sophist-icated building.
But now a UFO buff believes it Newgrange is a beacon site for aliens as they navigate their way across the earth.
Recent research has listed the World Heritage site as a UFO "hotspot" and one of the three best places in the country to see aliens.
UFO Society of Ireland president Betty Meyler has been fascinated by UFOs since 1997 after a mysterious crash in the Curlew Mountains near Boyle, Co Roscommon - which is listed as another hotspot.
And now she is investigating Newgrange, which, according to her, resembles the shape of a landed spacecraft.
And one bizarre theory she has is that extra-terrestrials may even have been involved in helping build the ancient burial chamber.
"Extra-terrestrials helped build the pyramids so it wouldn't surprise me if they had an input in Newgrange," said Betty.
Newgrange is best known for its passageway which is naturally illuminated just one day a year at dawn on the winter solstice when the sun is at its lowest point
There is a 10-year waiting list to a be present to see the amazing natural light show at the site, which attracts 200,000 visitors a year.
The monument resembles a grounded flying saucer and was voted a top location for UFO spotting at Ireland's first international UFO conference at NUI Galway just last week.
Betty said UFOs are attracted to megalithic sites.
"Our theory is that UFOs use these megalithic sites as beacons to guide them along the same way an aircraft uses a radio beacons," she explained. "These tombs are built on 'ley lines' and UFOs use these lines as guides."
And she believes the shape and structure of crop circles which have been appearing around Newgrange may be linked to the engravings on the 3200BC monument. …
