5,000 Years of History on a Dublin upland Farm

5,000 Years of History on a Dublin upland Farm

Having historic monuments dotted across their farmland is something that the Maguire family have embraced and protected for generations in Co. Dublin.

The presence of Neolithic, Bronze Age, and early medieval structures on the land serve as a reminder to landowner and farmer, Philip Maguire, of the significance of the area known locally as Newtown Hill, just a stones throw from Glencullen in the Dublin uplands.

While the land is now occupied by Wicklow Cheviot ewes and their lambs roaming the hill, a vivid picture of what the area was like over the centuries was painted by Maguire, accompanied with his son Daniel and archaeologist Neil Jackman on a recent tour of the area.
