THE THOUSAND YEAR OLD BOY

YVETTE MONAGHAN

 

In 2011, some cavers made exciting archeological discoveries in a cave in the Burren, Co. Clare. A poignant revelation was also made: the skeleton of a child. They were able to extract DNA from the remains. The Archeologists tested this DNA against 150 children from a local school. One boy was an exact match. It turns out that he lives in a house less than one mile from the cave. The thousand year old boy explores how this ancient place embodies the stories and mythology of one boy and those who have gone before him.
