An Essay on the Druids, the Ancient Churches and the Round Towers of Ireland By Richard Smiddy

An Essay on the Druids, the Ancient Churches and the Round Towers of Ireland

Richard Smiddy

This is a Facsimile PDF. It has 334 pages and was published in 1871.


Despite the fact that this book is over 300 pages long, it only has 4 chapters; The Druids; The Druids Continued; The Ancient Churches Of Ireland; and The Round Towers Of Ireland. 'This ancient tongue is now on the point of dying out, even in Ireland which was its last resting place, just as, centuries ago, it disappeared in other countries under the dissolving influence of invasion and the introduction of foreign lingual elements. The language to which the ancient Bards strung their harps, and which flowed with such grace from the lips of fair lady, brave chief, and Druidical sage, is now soon about to take its departure for ever. This, in itself, may be a reason for endeavouring to raise even an humble monument out of it before it disappears altogether.'
