A touch of Ireland

For today I wanted to share a little something from the Emerald Isle. The first photo was made at the Cliffs of Moher on the western coast of Ireland in County Clare.  It certainly illustrates why Ireland is referred to as the Emerald island. The tower is known as O’Briens Tower.

A nice web site about the Cliffs of Moher may be viewed here.

The next photo comes from Wicklow County in the south eastern corner of Ireland. Glendalough served as a Christian monastic center for about 500 years from the sixth century A.D.

One of the educational exhibits at Glendalough involves the work of the scribe in copying the Scriptures and writing ecclesiastical works.
