All things Ireland

The Dominicans of Tulsk in TOOMONA, Ireland. This site was associated with Saint Patrick and is said to be the place where he baptised the daughters of Lir and a number of druids. The old well certainly appears to have a history stretching back to the pre-Christian era of Irish religious history.

The Tigh na Cailleach is a fascinating place. Hidden away in a remote glen west of Glen Lyon, it’s a small turf-roofed “house” which is home to a “family” of water-worn stones known as the Cailleach (old woman), the Bodach (old man), the Nighean (daughter) and further children. It is thought to be an ancient shrine to the cult of the Mother Goddess.

Trim Castle in Ireland, built by Hugh de Lacy is the largest Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland built in 1176
