****ABOUT LOUGH DERG*****
Lough Derg and its surrounding landscape of mountains, woodlands, islands, rocky shoreline, grasslands and rivers has influenced the lives of the people who have occupied its shores and islands in the past and into the present.
Historically, Lough Derg has been both a peaceful site for religious solitude and a corridor of strategic military importance.
The remains of monastic settlements associated with early Irish saints provide echoes of prayer, pilgrimage, art and study.
