St. Patrick heard the voice of the Irish calling to him, saying, "Come holy boy and walk amongst us again."
May we also hear Celtic voices both past and present—the ancient lives, the immigrant ancestors, the modern day wayfarers—and learn from their stories.
This picture is of the ruined monastery on Lough Erne in County Fermangh. This is on Devenish Island. One of the characters in a novel I'm currently working on lives in this area in about 477AD. While the location may have contained a monastery in the 5th century, these ruins are mostly, if not all, from a later time period, maybe the 12th century.
Have you visited the area? If you have, I'd love to hear from you. Email me: cindy at cindyswriting dot com
