Ancient Ireland
Hill of Uisneach

Here stands Aill na Mirenn; The Stone of Divisions, which marks the centre of Ireland.
The hill is the site of King Tuathal Teachtmhair of Connaughts great palaces.
The hill was venerated sacred in ancient times as home to one of the great festivals of
Ireland; Beltaine, when the chieftains of Connaught brought cattle and horses to the King in homage.
The ceremonies incorporated the lighting of large bonfires and chanting incantations for
the safeguard of the animals.
The festival is still honoured to this day throughout the land on the full moon before May 1st.
