fFound your site via abc search. You indeed have a beautiful site I love it, keep it going always. I love the chapel of the Immaculate Heart and the waterfalls and the statue of miracles and the picture of the statues of St.Ann and St.Joachim and Mary, our heavenly Mother.

This is the first time that I found your wonderful sight. We met in Clonfert the day of the endangered listing. I am still in New York but spend many months of each year in Ireland, always spending time in my beloved Clonfert. Thank God.

You should be so very proud of the great work that you are doing. The piece on Clonfert is quite incredible. I would like you to contact Galway Rural Development and ask them to include it on their site for Clonfert. Let me know if I can help. We need this piece linked so that we can spread the community  and International energy that existed that day in Clonfert. I have original Camera and other great material if you would like to receive it. We hope to do another event in the future. I will be in Ireland in October and would love to meet.
Best regards,

Moytura, Thank you for such a wonderful and extensive site to explore. How do you have time for all your talents and all this webbing too?  My spouse and I are heading for your fair Island soon for 10 days.  Maybe we will run into you on the streets of Galway. Hope so and God bless you and yours.

I found this site by reading a book called "the whitest flower" by Brendan Graham where he talks about Grosse-Île. I was fascinated to read about your journey to Grosse-Île I found the history very interesting. I look forward to following the links I found whilst reading this page.

Hi!  I'm a Canadian who's just discovering his Irish roots... have an application for citizenship pending with the Irish Embassy (Irish-born grandmother).  Was it ever great to find out someone in Ireland is interested in Canada too. :)  Your site is a delight.  I've bookmarked it.

the Journey

For those who have just joined me on this page why not go to the beginning of our travels and see some of the places in The Start of Our Journey through the West of Ireland.

My Place Amongst the Stones gives the history of my company name, Moytura - a celtic heritage going back thousands of years.

We journey to my own parish of Lackagh - a small village just 12 miles from Galway with a mighty big history. Learn all about the Battle of Knockdoe - one of Ireland's bloodiest of conflicts in the 16th century.

We then move on to take a quick jaunt around Galway City; and then to the heart of Connemara - with its wild and wonderful beauty.

From there we journey south into County Clare and see The Burren - a place that has lain undisturbed since the Ice-age and of immense botanical, ecological and archaeological importance.

Visit Ireland's finest early monastic heritage centre in Clonmacnoise, County Offaly; and to my favourite of all the early Christian Church locations - Clonfert, South County Galway, with its beautiful tiny 12th century Cathedral of Saint Brendan. Come with me around the grounds and see the Bishop's Palace and the 1000 year old Yew Walk.

While on the Clonfert pages, you can learn a potted history of Saint Brendan the Navigator, possibly the first European to set foot in North America in the 6th. century. And join me in the celebrations when this tiny cathedral was listed in the World Monuments Watch 2000 most endangered monuments.

Come with me on my 'Famine Journey' which starts in Westport, and moves to Sligo, my Dad's County and the departure port for many of the 'Coffin Ships'. This part of my journey ends in Grosse-Île on a tiny island east of Quebec City.

On this page you will learn some of the history of our Famine Refugees and find the final resting place of over 6,000 of my country folk who died within sight of their first freedom in over 300 years. This is where many of the Irish roots in North America started.

Our Journey moves on to other places on that visit to Canada where we see Quebec City and some of Ontario's lovely places and then to two of Canada's famous Catholic Shrines - Saint Anne de Beaupré and to Cap-de-la-Madeleine.

Finally, join me on my pilgrimage to a peaceful haven in a war-torn country in Medugorje in Bosnia-Hercegovinia. The other areas of my Web site can be found in the drop-down box below.

It plans to expand even further in the very near future - to:

Australia, Brazil, Denmark, Germany, Japan, Mexico, and Poland.
If you, or anyone you know, living in any of these countries would like to start a home-based business, the opportunities are enormous as this company is only just beginning and, as Independent Consultants, everyone will be in at the very ground level. E-MAIL for details or check out the WEBPAGE.
