This is the view from the ancient settlement of St Bronach in Rostrevor where I live. It is the inspiration for my writing. What am I writing about? Well if you look carefully there is the remains of a cairn grave in the centre of the field in the picture, a standing stone. There has been human activity here for at least 4,000 years. Across the lough, in the background are the Cooley Mountains.These locations are witness to many significant events in Irish History, some of which are fascinating, especially those to do with women, and this is what I am writing about.
