Today we learned about the loss and revival of Irish Gaelic, visited a traditional village area, and climbed the cliffs of Slibh Liag. We saw the use of indigenous materials (stone, peat, and reeds as well as limestone for paint) in the houses and had the opportunity to see the limestone up close in the windswept (and rain-pounded!) Slibh Liag faces. Think about the natural resources that have been available to the Irish and the environment in which they occur. How do you think that the resources that are found here (and those that are missing) shaped the culture of the Irish? How does this compare to other cultures you are familiar with?
