Poison Glen, Dunlewey, Donegal Ireland

Ruined church standing under Errigal Mountain in Co. Donegal. The walls are still complete and the white marble of which it was built was quarried just a few hundred yards away. The adjacent graveyard contains a single gravestone. Few will venture near the old church for it is said to be haunted. A track past the church leads to The Poisoned Glen, which gets its name from many legends including one which cliams that lú (Lugh) killed the evil "Balor of the evil eye " here by driving a sword through his evil eye that poisoned the glen, since then no bird has ever been heard,
