IRELAND - People and Landscape
Ireland is a feast for the eyes and for the spirit. For more than six thousand years, this island set like a jewel at the edge of the Atlantic has been inhabited by people who appreciated its special qualities, both physical and spiritual. Here is a land where the past is more than palpable. The past is to be seen, touched, climbed, explored, experienced. Glen and mountain and valley are peopled with memories that will not die, and spirits that are not extinguished. In a world which seems constantly in flux, some aspects of Ireland are changeless. Dublin is a modern European city, yet only a few miles away, the wind blows across Tara hill as it has done since before the dawn of history, and sheep graze on the grass where once walked the magic people, the Tuatha De Danann.
