Throughout Ireland are 100’s of stone circles that were built back in the bronze age, between 1400-800 BC. Nobody knows for sure what their function was, but many scientists have speculated that they were associated with religious rituals that may have used observations of the moon and sun.
Many occultists believe that these stone circles were used by mystical priests to concentrate their power in order to do magical rites. They believe that the druids at that time possessed knowledge and powers that have since been forgotten over the passing of time.
As for us, we’re just American tourists and don’t really care what it was used for. But the thought of concentrating power and having some magical fun sounded intriguing. I mean, we have all seen the Harry Potter movies so how hard could it be. So, we went off in search of one.
In trying to find one close to the town of Bantry we found Kealkil Stone Circle just a few kilometers away. We drove our car up to the top of a hill and had to go hiking out over a muddy bog to get to the circle.
Once at the stone circle we thought we would start out with some simple magical exercises to warm up. Levitating sounded the simplest, so we practiced levitating. Easy peasy!
After warming up we thought we would try some more advanced magic. After using the stone circle to concentrate our abilities we were able to send each other flying. I bet every parent wishes they could send their kids flying at will. “Go to your room!” BAM!
After I went, Sydney thought she would get revenge on mom for making her eat vegetables. BAM! So easy even an 8-year old girl can do it.
After recovering from being blasted across the bog, Kerri tried her hand and sent Sydney flying. “Now eat your vegetables!”
We really have no idea why the scientists can’t figure out what these stone circles were used for. Maybe they just don’t believe in magic.
