You are warmly invited to our Sacred West of Ireland Tours.
W B Yeats, Ireland’s greatest poet, grew up near here in Sligo in the West of Ireland. And one of our Tours, Tour C takes you round the shores of Loch Gill where W B Yeats was inspired to write so much of his poetry.
In this Tour, Tour C, we see the Lake Isle of Innisfree, we explore the fairy energies of Slish Wood where W B Yeats was inspired to write The Stolen Child, and we read the Fiddler of Dooney and other poems.
We hear about the contribution of W B Yeats, Lady Gregory, AE and Ella Young and others in opening the door to connection to the Gods and the Goddesses of the ancient Irish once again: to the Tuatha De Danaan.
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.
