This work explores Irelands four provinces to discover the places at the root of Irish myth and legend. Focal mythic sites such as St Patricks Purgatory in Ulster, Loster Gur in Munster and Dublin in Leinster, are described in detail.

Finally Ireland is surveyed from a fifth province Mide where the entire island is seen to be held in a web of pre-historic sites aligned with solar-lunar events. Irelands sacred locations take on contemporary relevance as the book shows that the underlying concerns of myth - conservation and recurrence - are increasingly present concerns.
