Homage to the Gods - Co. Fermanagh The Janus Figure is believed to be between 2000 and 3000 years old and stands about 4 feet high in Caldragh Cemetery, an ancient burial ground on Boa Island in Northern Ireland. Just to the right of this figure you can also see the Lustymore Island figure which is more worn with less details.
The name "Ard Boe" means "hill of the cow" it comes from a legend that the monastery of Ardboe was built from the milk of a magic cow out of Lough Neagh and forms the only remaining part of an early monastery on the site. At around 18.5 feet (5.6 m), Ardboe High Cross is Northern Ireland's tallest cross. Although the head of the cross is damaged, it seems to be the only such cross in Northern Ireland to remain largely complete and original..
Waterford is a county that doesn’t forget: many centuries after the Déisí tribe left this sunny south-eastern pocket of Ireland, the county remains known as ‘The Déise’. But this fondness for the past should come as no surprise: Waterford’s rich history has left behind the crumbling monastic treasure of Ardmore, the riches of the Viking Triangle, and the proud tradition of Waterford Crystal. This is a county to be savored.
