Review:
Glendalough is a beautiful valley in the Wicklow Mountains. It is also the site of an early ecclesiastical settlement with many ruined churches and stone crosses and the remains of a sixth century monastery which was founded by Saint Kevin. The author, who is the manager of the Visitor Centre, retells the many legends and miraculous events attributed to Saint Kevin and examines the folk traditions associated with the area. This book would be a useful guide, on the spot with book in hand, but it could also be read with much interest at leisure as there is a lot more to it than just a description of sacred sites. It is beautifully illustrated throughout in vibrant colours.
