      Irish Druids and Old Irish Religions

      by James Bonwick

      Excerpt


      Ireland, whether viewed from an antiquarian or an ethnological point Of View, is one of the most interesting countries in the world. It is not the less an object of attention from the fact, that in its early history there are traces of nearly every kind of pagan belief.

      It is curious that its literary treasures should have been so long neglected. Of late years, thanks to literary and scientific societies, including the new association fostered by Sir C. Gavan Duffy, Irish mss. Have engaged much thoughtful investigation.
