Irish Examiner: Ireland is Not Atlantis Say Experts

The National Museum of Ireland has issued a statement dismissing claims by a Swedish researcher that Ireland was the legendary Atlantis.

Geologist Ulf Erlingsson of Sweden believes that ruins around Tara prove that the island is Plato's Atlantis, but experts at the National Museum of Ireland dispute the claim. "We can say that we know of no archaeological evidence which would support Mr Erlingsson's theory," said Patrick Wallace of the museum.
