Grianán of Aileach, Donegal
From Omagh we travel over the border North to Donegal. At Grianán of Aileach we reach our 2nd Tuatha De Danann portal.
Last year preparing a Christmas gift for my mother, I converted many old slides of family pictures from the 1970’s and 1980’s. One was of my brothers and I climbing on an old fort. I did not know the name of it but was captivated by the picture. When the photo book was complete and presented to Mother she stopped at this photo and declared that the place had given her the creeps. Mother is a sensitive but does not acknowledge it. She does not distinguish a good feeling because it feels OK or normal to her but if she experiences something unfamiliar it is logged as creepy or unpleasant. Each time anyone came to this picture Mother made further comment. I began to hear what she was saying was for me to listen more deeply. Grianán of Aileach was on the itinerary!
Following Grianán we will travel south to Kilcar, Co. Donegal to gather – Comhluadar – as clan or family, to share stories, inform and be informed. We invite you to join us to share your stories and songs as we build the matrix for our onward journey. Please follow the link in the brown bar to book for this Comhluadar. Location and address will be provided when you confirm your booking.
