The Long Way to Glencree
I had a chance over the weekend to visit the The Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation, which is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation that is devoted "to peacebuilding and reconciliation in Ireland, North and South, Britain and beyond. The programme work builds peace and fosters reconciliation by facilitating dialogues, creating peace education resources, and much more."
I went with my friend and fellow lay Marianst, Susan Mason Buckley, and we stopped at Glendalough, to visit the 6th century monastic site and round tower.
We also passed through the snowline in the Wicklow Mountain National Park.
But we did finally make it out to Glencree, and it was worth the long drive!
