TRAVELLER'S GUIDE TO SACRED IRELAND
A Guide to the Sacred Places of Ireland, Her Legends, Folklore & People
Cary Meehan

Here at last is a guidebook written for the traveller who wishes to experience the spirit of ancient Ireland. Ireland possesses such a vast number of ancient sites that most of them remain unknown and all but forgotten except by those who live nearby.

This book offers directions to some 800 sites in both the North and South. Here are simple wells and stones which are still regarded as places of pilgrimage to the local people. Here, also, are sites of national importance, holy mountains, lakes and rivers created by giants and protected by fairies, ancient churches, round towers, high crosses and beautiful cathedrals built on sites held sacred for thousands of years. The enigmatic temples from pre-Celtic times, the megalithic monuments we call tombs, are all well covered here with many new insights. Some are internationally important like the complex and magnificent tombs of the Boyne Valley. Others sit alone on wild and windswept hillsides waiting to be discovered.

Cary Meehan has explored many such previously uncharted sites and she reveals their secrets in historical and archaeological detail, the legends and folklore as well as the current information on earth energies relating to the sacred nature of these sites. This guide will enhance the experience of any traveller to the ancient magical land of Ireland.

As well as b & w illustrations throughout, the guide also has colour codes by province & county & userfriendly maps and keys.
