Flatley Goes Back to the Bronze Age...

Lord of the Dance Michael Flatley landed smack-bang in the middle of an important cultural heritage site on the grounds of his new home Castlehyde in Cork on Monday.

Michael Flatley seems to be never far away from controversy and the 6 euro million refurbishment of his mansion in Cork hasn't been without delays and setbacks.

So when his workmen uncovered a 4,000 year old burial chamber while digging a septic tank on the grounds it might have been less complicated for the billionaire to simply cover it up and say nothing.

But not Michael! The talented dancer and businessman is delighted with the find which uncovered two perfect earthenware jars last Monday.

He told the Evening Herald: "It's just incredible. It's possible there is a whole Bronze Age graveyard in this area. There certainly should be a major study done on this site, and what else could be lying undiscovered?"

To many builders and developers in Ireland uncovering such heritage sites can spell disaster as proper archaeological investigations can hold up work for months if not years.

But thankfully Michael doesn't see it like that:

"But what I think is really important is that people alert the authorities to these finds. The fear is that in some cases it's easier to just rebury the find just because it will slow down work."

Well said Michael... Do you think Mr. Flatley did the right thing for the reasons? Discuss it in his ShowBiz Ireland Forum...
