Ring of Gullion, Where Poets Walked
‘…what is fantasy but reality that has missed its mark by a fraction?’
So says Hugh Murphy in his opening piece, Pathways of Stone in The Ring of Gullion, Where Poets Walked. And when you look at the history of this little part of Ireland, especially the poets and musicians who gave South Armagh its rich cultural heritage, the truth of his statement is self evident.
Within these covers local men Hugh Murphy and John Campbell will take you on a tour of the beautiful countryside surrounding Slieve Gullion, stopping off along the way to share with you the history, lore and poetry of the place, while the remarkable paintings of Drumbilla Artist Gerry Clarke transport you from your armchair right into the heart of South Armagh.
