We arrived safely in Dublin and were greeted by our host and guide for the week, John Spencer. We headed right out to Glendalough, a monastery founded by Saint Kevin in the 6th century. The ruins were extraordinary and John provided rich descriptions and history of the site.
We are tired after a very long day and the Internet is slow, so we’ll just post a few of our photos. In the group shot, we surround a perfectly preserved, carved stone Celtic cross estimated to have been in that spot for over 1,000 years.
To walk where so many pilgrims have walked before was very moving.
We are staying at John’s wonderful retreat, the Ferry House, just across the river in Kilkenny. More on that later.
