I run Boyne Valley Tours and noticed how often sheep are in photos of megalithic sites : Newgrange, Tara, Loughcrew, Avebury and more.

Athgreany Stone Circle (The Piper Stones), Co. Wicklow

Athgreany Stone Circle (Pipers Stones), look carefully for the sheep behind the bush.
Sheep at the outlier located about 50 meters from the stone circle. The story goes that a group
dancing to a piper on the sabbath were turned into stones, the outlier being the piper.

Many thanks to Ken Williams for identifying the Stone Circle. I was then able to find
