Ireland's Ancient East
The Canadian Expat explores this rich, strange land studded with castles, and shaped by stories that stretch back 5,000 years.
At first glance, the east of Ireland is pretty, lush green fields and hedgerows dotted with busy little towns and laced with gentle rivers and framed by the Irish Sea. But ask the locals for a story or two, and then look again, closely. This is a landscape full of secrets, where memories are long and filled with tales of battles and betrothals, of stars and the spirit world, of wealth and sometimes wickedness.
