It is rather, a study in history and psychology—a gentle, scholarly tale reflecting the lady judge herself. Reading it, we learn not only about the legal system of Ireland in the Middle Ages, frequently compared unfavorably to the savagery of the British, but also we meet an assembly of fascinating individuals.
They range from the sour village priest to the King who is smitten with Mara— providing a bit of gentle romance. When you visit the Burren, besides stopping at Poulnabrone, you might want to include in your travel plans, a visit to the Craggaunowen Project.
There we saw a 15th century castle, and a recreation of an earlier Iron Age settlement th century , as well as the boat of St. Brendan who supposedly discovered America before Columbus. The Craggaunowen Project is hidden away in a rural area and does not have its own web page. Nevertheless, as a living history site it was one of the most fascinating we ever visited.
