Glendalough

On the Tuesday following the Gathering, we are visited Glendalough - For thousands of years people have been drawn to ‘the valley of the two lakes’ for its spectacular scenery, rich history, archaeology and abundant wildlife. Glendalough is a remarkable place that will still your mind, inspire your heart and fill your soul. It is also home to one of the most important monastic sites in Ireland. This early Christian monastic settlement was founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century and from this developed the “Monastic City”. See http://www.glendalough.ie/. We joined Father Michael Rodgers who took us on a spiritual journey around the valley.


“To initiate the experience, Fr Michael invited us to follow him by walking silently along a labyrinth, that represented our lives from conception to the present day. By walking the path of St Kevin, both literally and symbolically, we were to absorb the present of nature beyond the more practical senses. Appreciation of sound; bird song, running water; shape and colour; the trees, sky and clouds.” Philip and Dominique Manser.


We closed with Mass in “God’s Cottage”
