Dingle – June 1, 2014 - I touched on this in an earlier entry but I want to return to it.  This was one of the most fascinating stops we had.  What made it even more interesting is that it was a spur of the moment stop that the coach driver just happened to know about.

St. Bridget’s well is a pagan site that was appropriated by the priests as they converted the country to Christianity.  The site was considered to be a holy place where people could come to “talk with the dead”. 

As I was taking photos and looking at the site, the man-made cave full of notes, artifacts, and prayers struck me for the deceased.  I thought about the thousands of stories that must be on those walls.  I wondered what the stories were from the shovel, to the scarfs and jewelry, to the photos.
