Over 20,000 hope for shot at Winter Solstice in Ireland

27,000 people applied recently for a chance to celebrate the Winter Solstice in the Stone Age tomb in Newgrange, Ireland. Only 100 won the honor. Andrew Bushe has the story.

Newgrange, which dates to about 3200 BC, is located in County Meath north of Dublin and was built to align with the sun during the Winter Solstice. The spectacular display lasts only 17 minutes, and the tiny chamber only holds a few people. That fact didn't deter thousands from applying for the lottery to choose the 100 winners.
