The St Gall Priscian is an ancient manuscript produced by Irish scribes around 850. The 1,169 year old book has contributions written by Irish monks from Bangor and Nendrum. This manuscript can be seen in the St Gall Abbey library in St Gallen, Switzerland where one of the most valuable collections of medieval Irish literature in the world is held.

I recently walked the historic hill of Tara. It is a royal place, seat of the most powerful of Irish Kings. The coronation stone you see is the Lia Fail, Stone of Destiny. It is also a sacred place, in ancient times Tara was revered as a dwelling place of the gods. It is the site of one of the largest complexes of Celtic monuments in Europe.
