MOST RECENT

Great to see Micheál Martin T.D. and Councillor Padraig O’Sullivan in Youghal recently. They took the 'time' to visit us at Youghal Clock Gate Tower. We were delighted they came to visit and hope will call again soon. #youghal #youghalclockgatetower #ringofcork #eastcork #purecork #irelandsancienteast #storytelling #fundayout #irishhistory #irishheritage #irishstorytelling #fiannafail

Shipwreck

“There’s no mistake, I smell that smell. It’s that time of year again, I can taste the air. The clocks go back, railway track, something blocks the line again, and the train runs late for the first time.” (Kelly Jones)

Mohill Train Station, which formed part of the Cavan-Leitrim narrow gauge railway, opened on the 24th of October 1887. It closed on the 1st of April 1959.

Mistletoe, moss and ferns envelop an ancient tree in the aboriginal Irish forest. Today you can only find ancient forests in the most difficult terrain as here on the slopes of Knockoumah (200 m) a steep hill overlooking the unique tidal lake Lough Ine. The forest was devastated in 2017 by hurricane force winds which ripped many ancient oaks and elms from their roots, a weather event unheard of in living memory. The ancient oaks are hung with holly and mistletoe, and the groves considered sacred by Celtic Druids. When Christianity came to Ireland many ancient groves were destroyed because of this, and precious few remain. If you ever kissed someone under the mistletoe at Christmas, you were reenacting a pagan ritual of love. #druids #celts #paganritual #irishhistory #westcork #ireland

Bath Abbey contains 617 wall memorials and I found this one to Robert Walsh Esq (died September 1788) particularly moving. It ends like this: “By the death of this Gentleman an ancient and respectable Family in Ireland became extinct”.
.
A splendid memorial, though.

Well a few people thought my post on debunking Irish slavery was too opinionated so I decided to make it worse. The debate is simple: was Irish slavery a myth or fact? Personally I believe it's a myth and can go on about how it's just something people like to make up and exaegerate servants to try and take attention away from Black slavery but a few people didn't like that.

Prime day was pretty good if you are: interested in practical philosophy/reading up on Irish history/a child.

Looking forward to cracking my first @ryanholiday book after leaning heavy on his recommendation lists to populate my bookshelf over the past few months.

A megalithic tomb in rural County Cork bears witness to thousands of years of mankind. The Stone Age peoples of Ireland are believed to have built such tombs beginning around 4000 BC. The tombs are found throughout Ireland most famously around Tara where the Newgrange passage tomb lies. The giant stones that make up these gateways are often aligned to indicate solar solstices, thus suggesting that sun worship was important to the Neolithic people of Ireland. #megalithic #stoneage #westcork #ireland #nofilter #irishhistory #prehistory #eire

Just back from a visit to Kerry, Ireland. ☘️🇮🇪✈️

First stop...Dublin City on a calm night! The River Liffey flows through the centre of Dublin and is 125km long. It's a lovely walk along the Quay's. I started at the Samuel Beckett Bridge and walked right up to the Grattan Bridge...crossing each bridge, back and forth along the way. There's a lovely boardwalk coming up to the Ha'penny Bridge. I then walked through the madness in Temple Bar to get some food. Found a little gem called Bunsen @bunsenburgers....best burgers in town and not too expensive. The bars in Temple Bar are expensive but the live music is great and the craic is mighty 😀
Next stop... Kilmainham Jail!
