Kevin’s enthusiastic embrace of Irish history shines through with his Book of Kells tour. He starts the tour in the great courtyard of Trinity College. He then weaves together two intricacies: this amazing effort to preserve the Christian gospels at the start of the dark ages… and the incredible illuminations on the pages. Kevin, as a scholar of Irish history, has access to all of the recent research and thinking about the Book – an added bonus! This tour was one of the highlights of our week in the Dublin area.
I wish it had been longer
Catherine was great! So generous with her knowledge and caring.
