Offerings to the Hag of Beara
Quoting the historical marker:
"An Chailleach Bhearra (the Hag of Beara) is one of the oldest mythological beings associated with Ireland and she is particularly associated with Kilcatherine in the Beara Peninsula, where she mostly lived. She was considered a goddess of sovereignty, giving the kings the right to rule their lands. According to legend, she had seven periods of youth one after the other, so that every man who had lived with her came to die of old age. Her grandsons and great-grandsons were so many that they made up entire tribes and races and as a result she was known in many parts of Ireland and up along the west coast of Scotland.
"She considered the arrival of Naomh (Saint) Caitiarin, who preached Christianity in Kilcatherine and the surrounding districts, as a threat to her powers. One day, after gathering seafood along the shore of Whiddy Island in Bantry Bay, the hag returned to Kilcatherine to find the saint asleep on a bare hillock. She approached him quietly, grabbed his prayer book, and ran off. A cripple who lived nearby saw what happened and shouted at Naomh Caitiarin, who then woke up and saw the hag running off. The saint ran after her, caught up with her in Ard na Cailli, and recovered his prayer book. He then turned her into a grey pillar-stone with her back to the hill and her face to the sea. There she remains to the present day."
"Happiness cannot be separated from suffering. We know happiness because we know suffering. If we have not experienced hunger, we cannot fully realize how happy we can be if we have something to eat. If we have not lived the life of a homeless person, we will not appreciate fully the fact that we have a house to live in. That is why happiness cannot be separated from suffering. It means that if you have suffered, you can be happy. If you do not know anything about suffering, you cannot be a happy person."—Thich Nhat Hanh, "Under the Rose Apple Tree", p. 19
“There is a black crow in the company of white cranes. Only because black is present can we appreciate the beauty of white. Sorrows can teach us the value of joy.”—Amma
"Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure."—Rumi
"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers."—M. Scott Peck
“To go in the dark with a light is to know the light. To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight, and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings, and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.” -Wendell Berry
