  • the gaelic ones of yore 

    recalling the first footfall on our talamh eire 

    those gaelic authors have tugged those strings of words 

    to melody of music make on the sheaf of a page 

    to ensure you heard their voice 

    through the medium of a type writtten eirexo screen 

    keep the lore telling the tale of the gaelic ones 

    in any melody of voice or note or letter framed 

    lest it be forgotten tomorrow

  • A lot of historical vestiges in this place. I believe this place used to have a lot of historical stories happening. In 1970, many new discoveries became known. These are important findings.
