Winter Solstice To Be Live Streamed From Newgrange


Share this article


The Winter Solstice will be broadcast around the world from Newgrange for the first time ever today.

Each year, the OPW runs a Winter Solstice Lottery. In 2017 over 33,000 people applied from as far afield as Austria, Italy and the US.

Just a handful are selected to enter the chamber each year.

This morning marks the first ever live-stream of the event.
