Taken from the roadside near Lough Bray Lower, this view of the main buildings that now house the Glencree Centre for Reconciliation, summarizes the summer in Ireland for me: emerald greens, decorated with gorse, old church buildings that have had multiple uses over their history, and at its heart a commitment to reconciliation and peace.
I appreciated be taken back into the serenity of the Wicklows. Thanks An.
I'll be in Wicklow in March, I hope I will see that place :-)
Greetings to you!!!
When you visit Wicklow, make sure you call in at this Centre for Peace and Reconciliation at Glencree, and learn about their programs. They provide wonderful accommodation here as well, at very affordable rates. The nearby Youth Hostel, a stopping place on the Wicklow Way is a bit inadequate even for hikers.
For nature lovers, it is so convenient, so hospitable, and you can contribute to their wonderful efforts to build sustainable peace. There are peat diggings nearby, waterfalls, lakes, forests, moors, layers of history, and high quality scenery. And not far away are some excellent pubs, as well as all that Dublin itself has to offer.
Book your stay on line: one night will not be enough!
This is another place I remmeber too Ian. Very loverly here. Great photo you have taken Ian. Thankyou very much, David :-)
Did you stay here, David or just explore the area? And thanks for this comment too.
No Ian, I didn't stay there. But I do remmeber driving through this area on our way to Dublin and then onto the north.
Interesting, you take volunteers... my students often wish to do a year of voluntary social service after having passed their A-level. Normally they would go to a Camphill community somewhere, but this is anaother possibility. I didn't know. Thanks for sharing!! And a very good morning dear Ian.
Wouldn't that be wonderful, to see youth contributing to the centre and learning of their efforts to build peace, starting with reconciliation? I am pleased that I have provided a link to their website.
Warmest regards, Maja.
