IE - 30921 A multiview of Ireland

Sent by Claudia of Ireland.

Description: Ireland has a rich heritage and none more so than the settlements built on the banks of the River Boyne. From the great pre-Christian monument of Newgrange, the magnificenct Slane Castle, Mellafont Abbey and the Hill of Slane where Saint Patrick is reputed to have celebrated the feast of Easter.

Claudia herself is of Germanic origin living in the area for 14 years where these historic castles are found. Slane Castle according to her is oftentimes used to hold concerts. Wish to visit Ireland one day!
