Green Spirit of Glendalough Framed
In the 6th century a monastic settlement was founded at Glendalough by the mystic and celtic saint Kevin. It flourished as a centre of learning and pilgrimage until the 12th century. St. Kevin was well known for his affinity for nature and all its creatures. It wasn’t unusual for wild animals to eat from Kevin’s hand or for birds to perch on top of his head. One story tells of the time when Kevin was praying with his arms out-stretched in the shape of the cross (the cross-vigil) and a blackbird landed on Kevin’s arm. She proceeded to make a nest in his hand and laid an egg. Kevin held his position in silence with his arm out-stretched so as not to disturb the bird until the egg hatched. Many of the myths and legends surrounding Glendalough involve stories like this about Kevin’s numerous encounters with its wild creatures. So if you ever decide to visit this magical place, slow down, allow yourself to tune into its beauty. And you may just sense that mystical spirit that is very much alive within the valleys, lakes, rocks, stones and earth of Glendalough.
