      Dolmens a NOT of Celtic origin! Traces of Celtic people are found from about 400BC, not in Ireland but in Austria and Swiss (Halstatt culture) If we speak about Celtic people in Ireland, we talk about 400-800AD. Dolmens and other Neolithic structures have been build from about 5000BC (France) till about 2500BC. There are NOT mainly found on the European Islands, but there are everywhere and mainly on the main land of Europe (France,Germany, Holland) but also in the rest of the world like Russia, Turkey, Japan and Vietnam. Carlow can claim that they have the largest Dolmen, but I suppose they did not look to other Dolmens in the rest of the world. In my opinion the largest Dolmen I've seen is in Portugal, the Dolmen of Zambujero. So many mistakes in such a small article....
