Here’s an online jigsaw puzzle featuring Knocknarea, County Sligo, a magical mountain associated with Queen Maeve of Connaught.
It's here that William Butler Yeats said "the wind has bundled up the clouds, high over Knocknarea."
Here’s a look at today’s featured image of Knocknarea taken from the Carrowmore megalithic cemetery and burial site, one of Ireland's thin places. I love how this ancient dolmen is the centerpiece of this online jigsaw puzzle.
I hope you’ll have fun piecing together this scene of ancient Ireland.
There are a few quick directions below the jigsaw, if this is your first time using these puzzles.
Jigsaw Assembly Tips
Use your mouse to move the pieces, then drop and click to link them together. Hover over the image icon on the top menu bar to open the image in a light box, to guide you as you piece it together.
You can also choose how many pieces you wish to use. In the center menu, the grid box to the left allows you to choose the number of pieces with which you wish to play. There’s a low option of 6 pieces if you have a little one who would like to try it out.
The circular arrow will rotate the pieces. Initially they are all facing the correct direction, but you can make the puzzle more difficult by twisting them around.
Happy jigsaw building as you recreate these images of Ireland.
