Ireland has a great number of very special locations within is mystical shores. I consider myself very fortunate to of visited most of them, both during the research process of this book and then again whilst writing this book. But to be totally honest with you, I just look for any excuse to visit Ireland, such is the effect it has on me. I have too say that Lough Gur also holds a very special place in my heart. When I was being shown around by the visitor centres head guide, I just knew we had stumbled upon a very special place and I knew for a fact my readers would love it here. I also recommend a visit to the Grange Stone Circle which is only a couple of Miles up the road. This magical place predates even Stonehenge and is said to be the main source of huge energy at certain times of the year.
