Prayerful Ireland


by Helena Connolly

Ireland has changed dramatically and traditional devotions are no longer part of our everyday lives. Nevertheless, there is an underlying desire for ‘something more’, and that desire has led many to rediscover the riches of our past: the pilgrim paths that crisscross our country from Kerry to Donegal, from Wicklow to Galway. There is beauty and mystery within these landscapes which the early monks celebrated wonderfully in their poetry, and which drew them to God and to prayer. 

Helena Connolly’s beautiful images will take the reader on a wonderful journey through this Prayerful Ireland.
