Announcing the dates of the next Tirconnell Stone Festival
Friday19th – Sunday 21st June 2015
To be held in the stunning Glencolmcille in west Donegal
Part of the Wild Atlantic Way – an area of outstanding beauty
The usual suspects could be found here today on a reconnoitre mission
A perfect location for a stone festival – Glencolmcille is a wealth of archaeological sites and artefacts which dates from 3,000 b.c.
The festival shall include a tour of pre-Christian standing stones, which were cross-inscribed during the Christian era
Meantime – we size up a ball of quartz
The eye cannot settle but it lights upon a fortune of stone built heritage
Schist is the native gear here. Phaid Cunningham contemplates the possibilities
Are we not blessed to belong to such gorgeous territory?
It would be pure selfish not to share it
Gleann Cholm Cille – the Valley of Colmcille
Join us if you can. It promises to stir the soul
