Irish weather can be a fickle creature.
It’s not that unusual to experience sunshine and rain together in the one place at the same time – particularly in the summer.
But to witness a fleeting rainbow over a sunlit Neolithic monument estimated to be at least 5,000 years old was a bit special.
Poulnabrone Dolmen in the Burren in County Clare has weathered many’s the storm in its time.
The rainbow lasted no more than a minute or two before quietly melting back into the clouds – a briefly splendid sight at such a truly timeless location.
