Ring Forts

Thousands of ring forts can be found all over Ireland.  This particular one, Leacanabuaile, is located in Cahersiveen and is in great shape.  “Leacanabuaile is one of only a few Irish Forts to have been excavated and those excavations revealed both Bronze and Iron Age objects suggesting that there was a farming community here from an early date.” (http://www.visitcahersiveen.ie/places_to_visit_detail.php?item=169&full=y)

Protection for people and farm animals in early days.  Looking at them now, it’s hard to imagine living inside their stone walls on the open grassy mounds.  But at the time, I’m sure it was a blessed protection from the elements and other harmful things.  The thing that always strikes me, though, is that the same God who protects and cares for us is the same God that protected and cared for them.  And history rolls on…

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” – Psalm 91:1-2
