I welcome the long evenings again, and love going back to some of my favourite haunts late in the day with my camera.  There is a lovely walk along the river Boyne here at Newgrange ( just past the visitor centre), very peaceful.
The Boyne Valley is central to many of Ireland's most famous and fantastic myths
Boyne:Mythical Origins
The River Boyne derives its name from the legendary Celtic goddess Boann.   The story goes that there was once a magical well-The Well of Wisdom (Tobair Segais in Irish)- which belonged to Nechtain, King of Leinster and husband to the Goddess Boann. Nectain was very protective of his magical well and no one but he and his three cup bearers were permitted to visit it.  One day Boann decided to visit the well and see for herself its wonders.  Some say she walked around the well three times counter sun-wise, others say she merely peered into its magical depths.  Whatever the case , the waters of the well rose up-blinding, mutilating and drowning the goddess- and then rushed seawards turning into a river.  Though nothing remains of the mythical well, its waters remain in the form of the River Boyne, named after the drowned goddess Boann.

This is a lovely spot for a walk along the river, and the burial chamber at Newgrange is just a stones throw away on the other side . There are usually a few swans to be seen , and some herons too, flying up and down the river
