Pilgrim Paths in Ireland:
A Guide By John G. O’Dwyer
In recent times the popularity of the Camino de Santiago has prompted renewed
interest in pilgrim walks in Ireland. Increasing numbers
now follow ancient Irish pilgrim paths to such holy places
as Glencolumbkille, Croagh Patrick, Lough Derg and Glendalough.
John G. O’Dwyer has walked – or, in the case of Clonmacnoise,
cycled – the pilgrim trails of Ireland, from Slieve Mish
in the northeast, where Christianity may have had its first
dawning in Ireland, to Skellig Michael in the southwest,
where the known world once ended.

and a map. The paths are varied and suited to a range
of abilities, from casual ramblers to committed walkers.
each route the author recounts his feelings and experiences,
and describes the entertaining and insightful characters
he meets along the way.
