In onderstaande video vertelt Dan Cronin, schrijver van het boek ‘In the Shadows of the Paps’ over deze historische plek.

The City en The Paps of Anu

Het townland Annagh More grenst aan de Paps of Anu: twee bergen van ± 690m hoog gelegen 5 km ten oosten van onze woning. Deze bergen en het vlakbij gelegen Cathair Crobh Dearg (The City of Shrone) zijn volgens overlevering al 7000 jaar in gebruik door eerst druïden en heidenen, maar later ook door christenen met name op 1 mei.

In onderstaande video vertelt Dan Cronin, schrijver van het boek ‘In the Shadows of the Paps’ over deze historische plek.

Druidic rituals were enacted at The City, up to the time when we were Christianized. It is possible that it was here at The City that the last stand of Irish paganism was made against the advancing forces of Christianity. In that far distant age this area was a great stronghold of pagan die-hards who flourished under The Paps at Cathair Crobh Dearg.

To Cathair Crobh Dearg is left a legacy of a religious nature, unique and strange, to this day. Right down through the ages, through Druidism and Paganism and through many mutations of human searching, religious ceremonies have been enacted on this barren windswept site. This chain of events has remained vibrant and alive – one of our cherished last remaining links with those days long past.
