(6:15) What are ‘thin places'
‘Thin Places' are locations where earlier peoples felt very close to the earth or very close to the spirit world. When you visit a ‘thin place' you can't help but feel that there is more than you can see.

Malahide Castle Located just outside Dublin, haunted by at least two ghosts.
Grange Stone Circle at Lough Gur in County Limerick The largest stone circle in Ireland.
Loughcrew Cairns in County Meath
