Hello again to everyone and greetings in this the season of Imbolc. I hope those of you in the northern hemisphere have started to notice a "stretch in the evenings" as we say here in Ireland. From now until Bealtaine, 1st May, you should notice a good weekly increase in the amount of daylight, with the sun's setting position on the horizon moving quickest at the time of Spring Equinox in March.
PHOTO OF THE MONTH:
I've added a new Photo of the Month for February showing snow-covered Cooley Mountains, taken this morning at Blackrock, County Louth.
IRISH & CELTIC MUSIC:
I've added a brand new section to the website featuring Irish and Celtic music by contemporary artists. I hope to build this section up as time goes on.
NEW BLOG FOR ISLAND OF THE SETTING SUN:
Our book, Island of the Setting Sun, continues to be displayed prominently on bookshelves all over Ireland and further afield. We've set up a new BlogSpot page to feature more news and updates relating to Island of the Setting Sun.
The Mythic Links group has a fantastic new website. It is beautifully designed and features lots of stunning imagery.
The Bremore passage-tombs have been saved by a decision to move proposed deep water port infrastructure to a different location. This has been welcomed as a vindication for the pro-heritage lobby.
EVENTS & ACTIVITIES:
Don't forget if you want to find out what's happening in Ireland, we have a new events and activities section which details upcoming events related to the subjects explored on Mythical Ireland. The latest item is the Meath Archaeological and Historical Society's outings list for 2009.
Our new-look Forum is now secure from the spam registrations which had plagued it. I would invite you all to register (it's easy and takes seconds) and join in the discussions which are many and varied.
