We spent most of today in Kildare, visiting sites assocated with St. Bridget. The monastery here was already established in Gwernin's time, and the site probably had earlier use by the druids, as Kildare means the church of the oak grove. Today the town was preoccupied with preperations for the impending visit of the Dalai Lama, who will be here Wednesday. Not sure whether or not we're sorry to miss seeing him - we move on the the Wicklow mountains tomorrow - but it was certainly easier to see things today in Kildare than it will be Wednesday.
I'm still uploading today's photos to Flickr, so I'll put one up later.
