The importance of Summer Solstice ties back to ancient Celtic society’s reliance on agriculture and crops. The reliance and appreciation for the sun is what brought people closer to nature and furthered the understanding for the environment. Through suffering and hardships during the winter months, the Solstice became an important celebration for success and ease during the summer.
The celebration of Summer Solstice in Ireland is tied to their ancient landmarks. Ireland has one of the most prominent Neolithic sites known as Newgrange. It dates back to 5,000 years ago and is a popular tourist location. In the same area in Co. Meath, there is the Hill of Tara which has tons of links to Irish folklore and is a popular location to celebrate the solstice.
