From the back cover
This unusual book gives details of three ancient pilgrim sites in County Care, and traces a walking route between them, including lesser-known sites on the way. Written by a historian and theologian, it provides a guide to the cathedral at Kilfenora, the monastic ruins at Killinaboy, and the famous churches on Scattery Island in the Shannon estuary. The route follows in part the ancient pilgrim routes; and the stopping places on the way indicate that a journey should give time to enjoy the landscape as well as the places where people have prayed down the centuries. Prayers and poetry from early Ireland are included, in translations that are often poems in their own right. A guide to the sites for visitors and for those who walk pilgrim ways.
