Description:
We had another Eason lined up for today, but it was yet another street, and somehow this Eblana image seemed more appropriate. The Poisoned Glen in the amazing upside down format, with a spectacular view of that valley, which is up to 150 years old (the format, not the valley)! +++ UPDATE +++ See Chris Wright’s contribution below for how the Poisoned (not Poison! thanks Anne McGinley) Glen got its name in legend of old. The less exotic, but no less interesting reason is that “Locals were inspired to name it An Gleann Neamhe (The Heavenly Glen), but when an English cartographer mapped the area, he carelessly marked it An Gleann Neimhe – The Poisoned Glen”. Photographers: Unknown Collection: Eblana Photograph Collection Date: between ca. 1870-1890 NLI Ref: EB_0375 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie
