Glendalough The Pilgrim's Guide by Fr. Thaddeus Doyle


Glendalough was once one of the four main places of pilgrimage in Ireland. I myself have been going there as a pilgrim for over thirty years. Not merely have I visited it more often than I have visited all the other pilgrimage destinations combined, but I have visited it more often as a pilgrim, than I have visited any other place on the face of the earth for any reason. I absolutely love it, and going there has played an important role in my own walk with Jesus.

It is a place of immense natural beauty, and of infinite cariety. The very earth has been made sacred by St. Kevin, St. Laurence O'Toole and a host of other saints, male and female, who truly fell in love with God and lived for Him in this sanctified place.

This booklet, in which I draw not just from the history books, but also from my own many pilgrimages and hours of prayer there, is designed to help you to be touched by God's love in this special place - or even as you read the booklet if you can't visit Glendalough.

This booklet, costs just €1.50 in God’s Cottage or is available by post for €3.50 to Irish addresses.
