    Wow, staring at that image made my eyes feel like I had been actually looking at the sun. Beautiful.

    I didn’t know Ireland had a holy mountain. Thanks for sharing.

    Doesn’t look like the Hill of Tara to me.

    It’s not. Irelands holy mountain is Croagh Patrick. St Patrick went up there for forty days during Lent before he died. He after undergoing trials encountered God or his angels according to tradition. It is said he was promised there that the faith in Ireland would never die out

    I didn’t know about that story, nor have we ever been to County Mayo. That’s one region in Ireland we’ve never been to. I suppose the nearest places have been Sligo and Galway. We’ve talked about going to that region to make up that deficiency; you’ve given me a destination in case we do it this summer.

    I climbed it a year ago. Very tough going up and scary coming down. At least three seasons in three hours-none of them Summer. But the views and the sense of peace at the summit make it worthwhile. I’m a great fan of the South-East Paddy, especially Wexford, but you can’t beat the West!

    Paddy S:

    From Irelands holy mountain, perhaps a a sign of hope in these appalling times.

    This looks like a sign from God, but a sign from God needs to be met with a human response. Would any Ricochetti be interested in joining a Ricochet rosary crusade to save Irelands Eighth amendment? There is exactly one week left, which somehow also seems predestined. I am starting today. Does anyone want to join?
