Hidden treasures found in County Down - headline in today's 'Irish News' which reported that a Viking silver ring and a piece of gold Bronze jewellery were found in Co.Down. The ring which was found near Groomsport is believed to date back to the 9th -10th Century. Viking rings are rare. Near Scrabo on the outskirts of Newtownards a small item of Bronze Age gold jewellery known as a sleeve -fastener was found dating back to 800BC. Scrabo Hill has a long history of settlement and through the centuries many interesting artefacts have been found.

Decided to be a tourist myself over the weekend and we went to County Mayo for a short visit. One of the highlights was a visit to the Ceide fields,one of the largest and oldest Neolithic sites in the world dating back over 5,000 years ago. We saw field walls built by Neolithic man and the foundations of a Neolithic home. There is a very good exhibition in the Vistors Centre. The site is located north west of Ballina and is on the Wild Atlantic Way. Nearby is Downpatrick Head named after St Patrick and part of a stunning coastline.
Also visited the Michael Davitt Museum not far from Foxford and near the village of Straide. He founded the Irish Land League, was a labour leader, member of Parliament and journalist with an interest in issues of injustice globally. www.michaeldavittmuseum.ie Adjacent to the museum are the ruins of a beautiful old abbey dating from the 13th C. Well worth a visit.

Today,in brilliant sunshine, I led an Ancient Ways coach tour in North Down. We started the day with delicious 'monk food' at Nendrum Monastic site in Strangford Lough and then travelled to see the abbey stones in Comber, followed by a picnic lunch on the northern shore of Strangford Lough. In the afternoon we visited Movilla Abbey, Bangor Abbey and North Down Museum
