Bards At Glendalough Woods & Wells

Saturday, 28th June, we enjoyed a special Bards In The Woods Meet Up at Glendalough, focused on both the Native Tree Woods there and a couple of the Holy Wells.

Here is a Google Map I have put together for what we do. The yellow mask faces marks the spot where the Green Labyrinth is where we are meeting.

Its probably a good idea to clip the larger map option, that also shows Reefert Church location, than try to fiddle with this reduced size version

Also good advice from Tara Ní Crábhagáin

"Just to let people know we'll meet at the labyrinth in the first car park at 2pm. That's the free car park with the visitors centre. The labyrinth is set in the grass so look over towards the bridge and you will see us gathered there. St Kevins Well bis our first stop so if you're a bit late please follow on up. If you don't know where the Well is, you cross the bridge, go left, a few minutes walk and you'll see us there  Don't forget your picnic, sunscreen and rainwear".

This event is inspired and facilitated by members of Irish Well Hunters'. They recently uncovered an ancient well at Reefert Church Glendalough.

From here we will visit the well known Kevin's Well, then walk the Green Road to Reefert Church, and visit the well that was recently discovered here.

This is a similar itinerary that many people turned up for during our torrential rain meet up in March 2013 - the worst rain ever for a Bards In The Woods, yet we enjoyedone of our best turnouts. This time we meet in summer.

Of course, we will share poems, stories and harp music there. Do bring your own favourite words, especially those written by yourselves, and share with us.

The we have a great craic with our shared Picnic,
so bring something along for the Picnic Table :-) 

Yes, please join with us there :-)
