Irish Cultural Titbit: The Book of Kells (Irish: Leabhar Cheanannais) sometimes known as the Book of Columba is an illuminated manuscript Gospel book in Latin, containing the four Gospels of the New Testament together with various prefatory texts and tables. It was created by Celtic monks ca. 800 or slightly earlier. The text of the Gospels is largely drawn from the Vulgate (a 4th-century Latin translation of the Bible) although it also includes several passages drawn from the earlier versions of the Bible known as the Vetus Latina. It is a masterwork of Western calligraphy and represents the pinnacle of Insular illumination. It is also widely regarded as Ireland's finest national treasure. The Book of Kells is held at the Trinity College Library in Dublin and can be viewed as a new iPad app here.

"Irish immigrants arrived in Charleston, South Carolina in three waves. Some of the earliest had arrived by the late 18th century, including James Hoban, an architect in Charleston who later designed the White House. The largest wave came during the second quarter of the 19th century, during Ireland's “Great Hunger.” A third wave came in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Michael Collins, Irish ambassador to the United States, helped dedicate a new Charleston park that pays tribute to those from his country who arrived here to build a new life."

Latest History Article from aoh.com: Newgrange s a prehistoric monument located in County Meath, on the eastern side of Ireland, about one kilometre north of the River Boyne. It was built around 3200 BC. It is aligned with the rising sun on the winter solstice, which floods the stone room with light. Newgrange is also older than Stonehenge and the great pyramids of Giza and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site (source:Wicki). Link to AOH Article on New Grange.
