The raven is one of the most important birds in Celtic mythology (and there are many important types of birds). The raven is a symbol of death and war, but also of the otherworld and its eternal pleasures. In Ireland, the raven is especially associated with Badb, whose name means "raven" and is an aspect of the Triple Goddess, Morrigan or the Morrigue. Her sisters Macha and Badb also appear in the forms of ravens on the battlefield. This is not unusual, given that the raven is a carrion bird.

The coin wishing tree. The idea was if you hammer a coin in here it could cure your illness. This is the kind of cultural stuff I love. #monogramsvacation

There must be some really old coins but not worth taking just incase the stories true
In the 1700s, they were used as wishing trees. People believed that a person suffering from an illness could hammer a coin into a tree trunk and the tree would take the illness away, but if someone removed the coin, they themselves would become ill.

"Pangur Bán" is an Old Irish poem, written about the 9th century at or around Reichenau Abbey. It was written by an Irish monk, and is about his cat. Pangur Bán, "white Pangur", is the cat's name. Although the poem is anonymous, it bears similarities to the poetry of Sedulius Scottus, prompting speculation that Sedulius is the author.

Because Viking raids continued into the 9th century, Irish monks continued to flee the on-going invasions by travelling to far off havens. One such monk exiled in Reichenau on Lake Constance is immortalized for writing a now famous poem in honor of his cat, Pangur Bán†. The cat, not yet completely identified with the devil […]
