During the Táin Bó Cúailnge (the cattle raid of Cooley) between Ulster and Connaught (provinces of Ireland) the legendary warrior Cúchulainn (son of Lugh the solar God and God of skills) battled his foster brother Ferdia in a ford in the river Dee. Only after Queen Medb had sent her greatest warriors against the mighty Cúchulainn only for them to be brutally slain with east she finally sent for Ferdia, who was nearly equal to Cúchulainn in every way. For Cúchulainn and Ferdia were both trained by the mighty warrior Scáthach, in her training camp in Scotland, they hunted, played, learned and trained together everyday for years. Ferdia was bound to do what his queen order and so he rode out to face Cúchulainn in the ford. When they met they greeted each other like good friends. They fought that day like two lions, equal in every way possible but after sun set the battle stopped and they once more treated each other like friends and spent the night drinking together. Their horses were both fed the same grass, they both got the same medicine and food and both their weapons were repaired equally. The next day they also greeted each other like friends before the fight started once more. This day they both fought like two angered bulls and were equal in every way. After that the day the same thing happened just as the first. On the third day they greeted each other like friends but this way would be different, they fought like two wolves and made each other bleed so much that the river below them turned red. After this day the two didn't drink together and got their food and medicine separately. The next day they didn't greet each other like friends and fought hand to hand. Their shields broke against each other and when Ferdia threw Cúchulainn back to his side of the river bank Cúchulainn got Laeg his chariot driver to bring the Gáe Bolga, his legendary spear that had no equal. When Cúchulainn threw the Gáe Bolga he watched as it flew straight into Ferdia's chest and when straight threw him. Ferdia fell to the ground screaming in pain before finally dying of his wounds. Cúchulainn fell on his knees beside his body and cried with grief, holding his friend's lifeless

If you find yourself in Ireland make sure to go visit Bunratty folk park.
Not only is there the castle but there's also shops, school and most importantly a working pub all reconstructed as they would have been in the 19th century. Don't worry the beer tastes fresh 🍻

Have a great weekend folks 👍

The Ha'penny bridge at sunset, a.k.a "Love lock bridge". sure its silly to think that by putting two names on a pad lock and locking it to a bridge magically ensures eternal love between them . but with a view like that its easy to beleive in miracles.

Walking around #bogside in #derry.
No political statement intended, just documenting what I saw there and the history of the Irish nation portrayed in this city.

#OnThisDay in 1965, the body of Roger Casement was returned to Ireland. He was executed in 1916 for trying to obtain German weapons for use in the 1916 Rising. During his life he investigated human rights abuses in the Congo and Peru for which he received a knighthood.

#genealogyphotoaday: Day 23: Old: The Church of Immaculate Mary, Refuge of Sinners, Rathmines Road, Rathmines, Dublin.
On Wednesday, at the end of my workday at the BMHA, Cathal Brugha Barracks, I stopped on Military Road to shoot the first of these images. This is the parish church my mam and dad attended when they lived in Rathmines, and it is the church in which my elder brother Michael was baptised.
194 years ago, in 1824, construction of the first church on this site began. The resulting Gothic church was 90 ft long by 37 ft wide by 37 feet tall. It was dedicated in 1830. This church is the ‘new church’. The church proper was completed in 1857, and its Portland Stone portico was completed in 1878.
In 1920, the church was almost completely destroyed by fire. During its reconstruction its spectacular dome, which was originally created for an Orthodox church in Russia, was redirected to Dublin to replace the dome lost in the fire. The new dome was no longer to be used by the Orthodox Church because, after the 1917 Russian Revolution, the ruling Bolsheviks declared the separation of church & state, seized church lands and converted many churches to alternate use buildings, so luckily it found a home here. #genealogyphotos #rathminesparish #irishfamilyhistory #irishhistory #dublindna #irishdna
