Description

Glendalough takes its name form the Irish 'glenn da loch', which tranates as 'glen of two lakes'.

Glendalough's most famous resident was St Kevin, who founded a small monastery here at the end of the 6th century. Over time, St Kenin's monastery at Glendalough became one of the most important church sites in Ireland and today is considered one of the premier National Monuments in the country. In this book you will be taken on a journey through majestic Glendalough, exploring the monuments, legends and history that make this one of the best preserved early Christian church sites in the world.
