Brehon Laws - The Ancient Wisdom of Ireland
Celtic Ireland was a land of tribes and warriors; but a sophisticated & enlightened legal system was widely accepted. The brehons were the keepers of these laws, which dealt with every aspect of life: land disputes; theft or violence; marriage & divorce; the care of trees & animals.
By turning off the main highway and discovering old routes, some of which have been travelled for thousands of years, you will see Ireland in an entirely different way. Follow the Old Road will take you on a tour of a variety of pathways from great river roads to lost railways.
