  • So little is known about these enigmatic figures. I have wanted to see them for years. Unprotected, down a side road, on the edge of a working farm, a simple sign, a small ancient graveyard .....if on...  read more »
  • Each time I direction Donegal drive and here voorbijkom can I get it to stop at Galdragh graveyard (ride there for a hour and more to with ease). The first time was after reading the book "Ireland imagined" by Ron Langenus (recommended) and I wanted what he described though es really see. Well I was not disappointed. I found Janus on the small forgotten graveyard on Boa Island and the "vibration" as Ron describes the feeling of such a place were everywhere. At the time, was the only sign that the Cemetery said still a little hand-painted something between the bushes and very very easy to miss. The better because such a place does not ask for buses and a tourist center to be cleaned up at all or Janus beware, and in the "gravel" (a new trend that teases many stone circles in recent years (example is drumskinny what away), easier passable though but the atmosphere (vibration) are a thing of the past. Sacrificed to moloch that tourism. No, to me this seems more like the stones there a few years previously, was established along with the strewn gravel ... Standing, round stones, which circled or alligned up hear lost in a bogland, hill flank or forest to stand up and look a little to have to search is half the fun anyway. But that aside, back to Janus. Second time I came, there was really a "party" tent on the image posted to protect it and hangde a message that a wooden construction (canopy) in the pipeline ... I loved my heart already fixed and swallowed a lump then pulled away, but no pictures this time, also remained not long ... The third visit again a year or two later was the tent away and everything back to the old one. Happy but.. Directions was unconvincing with a traditional Brown now bewegwijzerering from the Court as with most "monument" sites. This summer (2016) I was there back and still stands there at all as it should, the vibration are still there and the street sign is again improved. Miss You can now really no more ... The history and origin of Janus is apparently lost in a troubled past and pays to go into. Google is your best friend. I go here that are fun, not spoil what Lusty man, that little youngster at his side where everyone coins for, as far as I know this was found on a neighboring island and here in addition to Janus. Ie gets his name because he was a fertility image and people here come to beg help what sacrifice, if it not then impair either. I well I throw always also something in the sink is small for shaving between Janus are heads asking if ie me during the trip when the weather and make adjustments where necessary would save ... More are not. If you go and direction by Ireland Donegal ... Go es along and do him my greetings, the go you certainly don't.

  • Look out for the brown sign for Caldragh Cemetery to step into a peaceful prayerful space. Pre Christian times merge with Christian graves - our ancestors seemed to have no problem with old and new me...  read more »
